Shout! Factory Sets Oct. 18 Home Release Date for Medieval Epic ‘Kingslayer’

Shout! Studios and Kaleidoscope have announced the Oct. 18 home release of Kingslayer, a medieval action-adventure film written and directed by BAFTA Award winner Stuart Brennan.

The film will be available for digital sellthrough and VOD, and on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.

Kingslayer follows the story of Richard the Lionheart, who, with his kingdom on the brink of chaos, must decide whether to fight for his crown or his love for a commoner. Days away from his coronation, a secret meeting with the woman he loves turns into a life-or-death fight for survival. Ambushed by hired mercenaries, and without a clue who ordered his murder, Richard is left with no allies he can trust. As civil war looms, the young prince is forced to face both his enemies and the harsh responsibilities of leadership.

Kingslayer stars Stuart Brennan as Richard, with additional cast members Carolina Carlsson (The Young Pope), Ryan Gage (Hobbit), David Hayman (Macbeth), newcomer Ellie-Rose Mackinlay and John Rhys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings).
