The action thriller has its targets set for Blu-ray in May.
In an early announcement to retailers, Arrow Video is preparing 'Hired to Kill' for Blu-ray on May 17.
Starring legendary actors Oliver Reed (Gladiator, The Brood), Academy Award Winner George Kennedy (The Delta Force, Cool Hand Luke, The Naked Gun series) and Academy Award Winner Jose Ferrer (Cyrano de Bergerac, Dune, Lawrence of Arabia), Hired to Kill is an essential slice of '''90s action fare featuring guns, girls and a plethora of budget-busting explosions for good measure''.
Action movie staple Brian Thompson (whose brief turn in 1984's The Terminator led to a starring role in the 1986 Sylvester Stallone vehicle Cobra) stars as Frank Ryan, a mercenary sent to track down a rebel leader in hostile territory. Posing as a fashion designer, he won t be going it alone, as he ll be aided by seven beautiful but deadly female fighters. Whilst the opportunity to see Oliver Reed chewing up the scenery behind an elaborate moustache merits the price of the admission alone, Hired to Kill is also noteworthy as being co-directed by Nico Mastorakis the man behind such cult favourites as Island of Death and The Zero Boys.
The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will feature 1080p video, an LPCM stereo soundtrack, and supplements will include: Audio Commentary with editor Barry Zetlin; Hired to Direct a brand new interview with director Nico Mastorakis on the making of Hired to Kill; Undercover Mercenary a brand new interview with star Brian Thompson; Original Theatrical Trailer; Stills Gallery; Original Freedom or Death Screenplay (BD/DVD-ROM Content); Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys; and Fully-illustrated collector's booklet featuring new writing by critic James Oliver.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
