DORIAN GRAY, directed by HELLRAISER and NIGHTBREED co-star turned filmmaker Oliver Parker, is heading for DVD and Blu-ray.

Oliver Parker has made an impressive career out of directing stylish adaptations of the Oscar Wilde plays THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST and AN IDEAL HUSBAND, and now he continues his work with the reading-list favorite, Wilde’s novel THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY. In this drama, Ben Barnes (THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA – PRINCE CASPIAN) stars as the title character, a handsome young Victorian gentleman who remains eternally young while a portrait of him grows old and bears the ugly scars of his vile undertakings.
