Warner Home Video has announced the DVD and Blu-ray release of the whistleblower dark comedy ‘The Informant!’ starring Matt Damon, Scott Bakula and Joel McHale.
Both the DVD and Blu-ray release will include deleted scenes. The Blu-ray will add director Steven Soderbergh and screenwriter Scott Burns commentary and a Digital Copy of the film.
Synopsis: What was Mark Whitacre thinking? A rising star at agri-industry giant Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Whitacre suddenly turns whistleblower. Even as he exposes his company’s multi-national price-fixing conspiracy to the FBI, Whitacre envisions himself being hailed as a hero of the common man and handed a promotion. But before all that can happen, the FBI needs evidence, so Whitacre eagerly agrees to wear a wire and carry a hidden tape recorder in his briefcase, imagining himself as a kind of de facto secret agent. Unfortunately for the FBI, their lead witness hasn’t been quite so forthcoming about helping himself to the corporate coffers. Whitacre’s ever-changing account frustrates the agents and threatens the case against ADM as it becomes almost impossible to decipher what is real and what is the product of Whitacre’s rambling imagination. Based on the true story of the highest-ranking corporate whistleblower in U.S. history.
‘The Informant!’ will be available to own beginning February 23, 2010. The sell-sheet artwork has been added below.
