Empire State Going Direct-To-Disc

Despite names like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Liam Hemsworth, and Emma Roberts starring, Lionsgate have opted to forgo a theatrical release and bring the action drama “Empire State” directly to Blu-ray and DVD on September 3rd.

Dito Montiel’s drama follows two childhood friends who plan to rob an armored car depository, and the NYPD officer who stands in their way.

This marks another blow for Montiel following his cop drama “The Son of No One” starring Channing Tatum, Al Pacino and Juliette Binoche. Following a disastrous screening at Sundance, the film banked only a few thousand dollars in theaters.
