'Driving Miss Daisy' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Thu Sep 20, 2012 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The Academy Award winning drama has found a place to park on Blu-ray this January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers will release 'Driving Miss Daisy' in a Blu-ray digibook on January 8.

Alfred Uhry's moving Pulitzer Prize-winning play became 1989's Academy Award-winning Best Picture. 'Driving Miss Daisy' tells of genteel but strong-willed Atlanta matron Daisy (Best Actress Oscar winner Jessica Tandy) and her patient but equally determined chauffeur Hoke (Morgan Freeman). For two people so different, they have a lot in common. And the bumpy road they travel ultimately leads to the friendship of a lifetime. From the film's nine Oscar nominations, it drove off with two more awards: Best Adaptation Screenplay (Uhry) and Makeup.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include a new featurette, audio commentary, vintage documentaries, and a trailer.

Suggested list price for the digibook is $27.98.
