The Farrelly Brothers' 1996 bowling comedy heads to Blu-ray in September.
In an early announcement to retailers, Paramount has revealed 'Kingpin' is planned for Blu-ray on September 9.
Woody Harrelson is Roy Munson, a pro bowler who seems destined for greatness, or as close to greatness as a bowler can get. But after a run-in with angry competitors, Roy finds himself sadder, wiser and minus one bowling hand. Years later, he meets the naïve Ishmael (Randy Quaid), an Amish bowling whiz, and Claudia (Vanessa Angel), a sexy vixen with brains. Together they set out for a million-dollar tournament in Reno. Will Roy and Ishmael win the big match and score fame and fortune? Or will all their hopes and dreams go barreling down the gutter?
Specs have yet to be revealed, but the release will include both the PG-13 Theatrical and R-Rated Extended Cuts and supplements will include: Commentary by Directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly, Behind-the-Scenes Featurette, and Theatrical Trailer.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
