Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that they are bringing the dramatic thriller Rendition to Blu-ray this Summer. The film is directed by Gavin Hood and based on a screenplay written by Kelley Sane. Rendition stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Reese Witherspoon, Meryl Streep, Alan Arkin, Peter Sarsgaard, and J.K. Simmons. It will be available on Blu-ray everywhere beginning on June 11th.
In the film, Douglas Freeman (Gyllenhaal), a CIA analyst working in North Africa, starts to question his assignment when he witnesses the brutal North African police interrogation of an Egyptian-American named Anwar El-Ibrahimi (Omar Metwally), an Egyptian-American chemical engineer and U.S. immigrant suspected of a terrorist act. Meanwhile, Anwar’s pregnant wife Isabella (Witherspoon) does everything she can to find him. She enlists the help of an old college friend, Alan Smith (Sarsgaard), an aide to Senator Hawkins (Arkin), who uncovers the shocking fact that Anwar has been shipped off to a third-world country for interrogation on the orders of Corrine Whitman (Streep), the head of the CIA’s anti-terrorism unit. Isabella and Douglas team up to try to secure Anwar’s release from a secret detention facility somewhere in the Middle East.
Rendition was released in October of 2007 and grossed over $9 million at the box office.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has not released any details concerning the exact tech specs and special features that will be included with the disc.
