French label Wild Side Video has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray director Sam Peckinpah's The Killer Elite (1975), starring James Caan, Robert Duvall and Arthur Hill. The release will be available for purcahse on February 6th.
As steady hands carefully wire a bomb and meticulously set the timer to the eerie sounds of children singing in the background, and as the deadly device explodes, rupturing a building into fragments and splintering the tranquility of the theatre. Elite assassins Mike Locken and George Hansen take on jobs too risky for even the CIA to handle. They're best friends, superior marksmen and on the A-list when it comes to killing. But when one high-powered hitman betrays another, the intrigue, the violence and the trills become more than just a dangerous game of who-kills-whom first...It becomes a very personal war!
Note: In the U.S., The Killer Elite is distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Currently, the film is not available on Blu-ray, and the DVD release is out of print.
