Frank Darabont’s 1994 drama The Shawshank Redemption is making the jump to 4K Blu-ray later this year.
Widely regarded as one of the best films of the 1990s, The Shawshank Redemption is based on a novella by Stephen King. It follows Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) after he is sentenced to life in prison for the murder of his wife and her lover. While in prison, Dufresne befriends Ellis “Red” Redding (Morgan Freeman) and becomes a go-to inmate for many prisoners and prison staff due to his intelligence and resourcefulness.
The film first made its way to standard Blu-ray back in 2008. Since then, it has seen several Blu-ray releases. However, the latest product launch will be the film’s first physical 4K release.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray set on September 14.
