Blu-ray will lose more than a few pounds this August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Olive Films has revealed Stephen King’s Thinner will be available on Blu-ray on August 21, says High Def Digest,
Based on the best-seller, ‘Stephen King’s Thinner’ stars Robert John Burke (‘Robocop 3′) and Joe Mantegna (‘House of Games’) in a story of supernatural terror and countdown to the ultimate payback. “A 109-year old gypsy (Michael Constantine, ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’), hell-bent on revenge, exacts a curse so shocking it compels its victim to gorge himself in an effort to avoid shrinking away to nothingness. With time running out and a torture so bizarre and powerful, even death seems a more likely option. Directed by Tom Holland (‘The Langoliers’).”
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray will be $29.95.
