Wilson (Walker, Texas Ranger) and Edward R. Pressman (American Psycho, Wall Street), CRIMEWAVE is a zany comedy that blends elements of slapstick humor and crime film noir. On May 14, 2013, Shout!

    Synopsis
    In a nod to film noir, the head of a security systems company is bumped off by two gonzo exterminators who have gone from stomping out pesky varmints to stomping out human targets. The exterminators go after the partner who hired them and his blatantly obnoxious wife (Louise Lasser) and, in the meantime, frame a poor security guard (Reed Birney) for the murder of the company boss.
    Special Features are currently in development. Shout! Factory will announce final bonus content and additional news in forthcoming months.

    I'm dead excited for this one. Hoping for some cool features, but I'll take just the movie so I can retire my copy of a copy of a copy.

    Oh Snap! When I read the title I thought it referred to the B&W Noir 1954 film with Sterling Hayden and Charles Bronson.
