Dreamworks Home Video took a break from publicizing their recently released “Shrek” to announce the upcoming release of Woody Allen’s most recent – and heavily overlooked – fall project. The neurotic comedy Curse of the Jade Scorpion is coming to DVD in January.
CW Briggs is the top insurance investigator in 1940s New York. Well, that’s what he keeps telling the top efficiency expert, Betty Ann “Fitz” Fitzgerald. Briggs prides himself on being able to crack any insurance caper by getting into the mind of the thief, but the hypnotic powers of the Jade Scorpion gets the mind of the thief into Briggs. Now his work is on the brink of disaster as he copes with his new love-hate, hate-love relationship with Fitz.
Presented in anamorphic widescreen , “Curse of the Jade Scorpion” contains its original 2.0 mono audio mix and will contain a theatrical trailer and production notes.
“Curse of the Jade Scorpion” will be priced at $32.99. On January 29th, you can fall under its spell.
