The film starring Michael Keaton is headed for Blu-ray in April.

As previously reported, Starz/Anchor Bay says 'The Founder' will be available for Blu-ray on April 18.

Writer Robert Siegel (The Wrestler) details how Kroc maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire. The film also stars Laura Dern as Ray Kroc's first wife Ethel, John Carroll Lynch as Mac McDonald and Nick Offerman as Dick McDonald.
