A Double Dose of 'Get Carter' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Mon Dec 30, 2013 at 06:00 AM PST by

The 1971 and 2000 films will be gunning for Blu-ray in April.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is working on the original 1971 'Get Carter' as well as the 2000 remake for Blu-ray on April 22.

'Get Carter' (1971): A vicious London gangster, Jack Carter (Michael Caine), travels to Newcastle for his brother's funeral. He begins to suspect that his brother's death was not an accident and sets out to follow a complex trail of lies, deceit, cover-ups and backhanders through Newcastle's underworld, leading, he hopes, to the man who ordered his brother killed.

'Get Carter' (2000): It's not his turf. But it is his war. Las Vegas muscle and glitz meets dot-com, triple-latte Seattle, is a Vegas mob enforcer named Jack Carter (Sylvester Stallone) who prowls the Northwest city to smoke out his brother's killer.

Specs, supplements, and suggested list price have yet to be revealed.
