JUST WHEN LIFE WAS LOOKING UP, HE DOUBLED DOWN

Steve Buscemi, Sarah Silverman And Romany Malco Lead A Sensational Cast In This Hilarious Comedy Debuting On DVD July 13 From IndieVest Pictures and Vivendi Entertainment

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA - What happens in Vegas doesn't always stay there in SAINT JOHN OF LAS VEGAS, rolling onto DVD July 13 from IndieVest Pictures and Vivendi Entertainment. When a down on his luck gambling-addict named John (Steve Buscemi) decides to get away from Sin City, he packs up and finds a job at an insurance company in Albuquerque - which leads to a new girlfriend (Sarah Silverman) and the promising start of a new life. Just as things start looking up, the ex-gambler is sent on a road trip back to Vegas with a mysterious, veteran coworker to investigate a bizarre claim. The twosome embark on a journey full of hilarious encounters and oddball situations, showing John that running away from problems doesn't make them disappear and that there's more than one way to hit the jackpot in life.

Featuring "a great cast doing some of their funniest work" (Edward Douglas, ComingSoon.net), SAINT JOHN OF LAS VEGAS stars Steve Buscemi (Reservoir Dogs, Con Air), Sarah Silverman ("The Sarah Silverman Program," School Of Rock), Romany Malco ("Weeds," The 40-Year-Old Virgin), Peter Dinklage (Death At A Funeral), John Cho (Star Trek), Emmanuelle Chriqui ("Entourage"), Tim Blake Nelson (The Astronaut Farmer), and John Cho (Harold & Kumar movies). A laugh-out-loud Vegas comedy adventure from producer Spike Lee and executive producer Stanley Tucci, the DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.93.

Synopsis: The deck is stacked with oddball characters and outrageous twists in one of the year's most hilarious and original comedies. Compulsive gambler Johnny (Steve Buscemi) had finally beaten the habit, started a new life, and said farewell to Vegas for good...or so he thought. When his new boss sends him back to Sin City to investigate a shady insurance claim, all the chips are back on the table. Sarah Silverman, Romany Malco, Peter Dinklage, Emmanuelle Chriqui, and Tim Blake Nelson complete a royal flush of an ensemble cast in this laugh-riot comedy that's loaded with high-stakes temptations and low-down crooks.

Saw this movie in Miami, last week and thought it was great! Definitely going to pick it up on DVD when it comes out. I wonder if they will be coming out with it on Blu-Ray?

I rechecked the Amazon link at the bottom of the news item and it doesn't give a date for the Blu-Ray. It just says you can sign up to be notified when it's released.
