Anchor Bay Films has announced that Myriad Pictures’ “A Common Man,” starring Ben Kingsley, will be out on DVD and Blu-ray May 21.

The film, written and directed by Chandrum Rutnam based on the story by Neeraj Pandy, tells the story of an ordinary person who people would never suspect to be a terrorist:

“…Oscar®-winner Ben Kingsley (GANDHI, the upcoming IRON MAN 3) stars as a seemingly average citizen who plants five powerful bombs in different locations around a major international city and threatens to detonate them unless his sole unconditional demand is met: The simultaneous release of four of the most deadly international terrorists from government prisons. In an urban landscape already gripped by fear, what could be the real motive behind a cunning madman’s ultimate plan?

Ben Cross (STAR TREK, CHARIOTS OF FIRE) co-stars in the film, which has been named a finalist at this year’s New York Festival. An explosive thriller about duty, justice and the never-ending cycle of terrorist violence – all of which begins and ends with A COMMON MAN.”

The film was produced by B.S. Radha Krishnan, Manohan Nanyakkara, and Rutnam of Asia Digital Entertainment. Paul Mason and Jonathan Sheinberg served as executive producers.
