Brian De Palma's legendary misfire and Joel Schumacher's John Grisham adaptation are both planned for Blu-ray this November.
'The Bonfire of the Vanities' - A hit-and-run accident in the Bronx prompts a citywide conflict, fueled by ambitious politicians, greedy lawyers and jaded ministers with a wealthy businessman in the center of the controversy. Based on the best-selling novel by Tom Wolfe.
'The Client' - Susan Sarandon and Tommy Lee Jones join newcomer Brad Renfro in 'The Client,' a whirlwind thriller that "starts like a house afire and keeps on blazing" (Chicago Tribune). Renfro plays Mark Sway, an 11-year-old torn between what he knows and what he can never tell. A hitman will snuff him in half a heartbeat if Mark reveals what he learned about a Mob murder. An ambitious federal prosecutor (Jones) will keep the pressure on until Mark tells all. Suddenly, Mark isn't a boy playing air guitar anymore. He's a pawn in a deadly game. And his only ally is a courageous but unseasoned attorney (Sarandon) who risks her career for him. . . but never imagines she'll also risk her life.
Spec and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for each Blu-ray is $19.98.
