'Jayne Mansfield's Car' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Wed Oct 23, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The comedy drama starring Billy Bob Thornton, Robert Duvall, and John Hurt is coming to Blu-ray in December.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is preparing 'Jayne Mansfield's Car' for Blu-ray on December 10.

In what critics are calling his best work as writer/director since Sling Blade, Academy Award®-winner Billy Bob Thornton stars along with Oscar winner Robert Duvall, two time Oscar®-nominee John Hurt and Golden Globe®-winner Kevin Bacon, in this story of fathers and sons, wars and peace, and the turbulent time that changed America forever. It's 1969 in a small Alabama town, and the death of a quirky clan's long estranged wife and mother bring together two very different families for the funeral. But do the scars of the past hide differences that will tear them apart or expose truths that could lead to the most unexpected collisions of all? Robert Patrick ('Walk The Line'), Ray Stevenson ('Dexter'), Katherine LaNasa ('Deception') and Frances O’Connor ('The Hunter') co-star in the acclaimed comedy/drama where "the performances are first-rate" (NY Daily News).

Specs have not been detailed yet, but supplements will include Jayne Mansfield’s Car: Behind the Scenes featurette.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
