Three of the acclaimed director's best films will be bundled together in February.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers will be releasing 'The Frank Darabont Collection' on Blu-ray on February 24.
This set will include 'The Shawshank Redemption,' 'The Green Mile,' and the Blu-ray debut of 'The Majestic.'
Darabont was born in 1959 in Montbéliard, Doubs, France where his parents had fled to a refugee camp after the Hungarian Revolution in 1956. The family soon moved to Chicago and then Los Angeles, where Darabont grew up. After spending years as a forklift driver and writing for such projects as The Blob, The Fly II and Young Indiana Jones, Darabont caught the eye of Stephen King, and the two became friends. This led to collaborations on Darabont’s first two films, The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile and later The Mist.
Both The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile received Academy Award® nominations for Best Picture. The Shawshank Redemption received a total of seven nominations and The Green Mile four. Darabont himself collected Oscar® nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay for each film as well as nominations from the Director's Guild of America.
Darbont’s other distinguished credit is the hit AMC TV series The Walking Dead, the pilot for which he created, wrote and directed, as well as executive produced the first season with Gale Anne Hurd.
No other details have been revealed at this time.
