A novella from Stephen King's 2010 story collection, Full Dark, No Stars, Big Driver is a literary gut punch that takes an unflinching look at an atrocious crime committed on a lonely highway, and the relentless revenge that followed. Last month, Lifetime aired a movie adaptation of Big Driver with Maria Bello as Tess Thorne and Joan Jett as Betsy Neal, and this winter Lionsgate will release the movie on DVD and Digital HD.

Lionsgate Home Entertainment will release Big Driver on DVD (plus Digital HD) on January 27th, 2015. Below, we have the official press release with full details and a look at the cover art:

Press Release - "From best-selling author Stephen King comes Big Driver, arriving on DVD (plus Digital) January 27th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

With a teleplay by Richard Christian Matheson and directed by Mikael Salomon, Big Driver will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $14.98.

Tess Thorne, a famous writer, faces a long drive home following a book signing. While driving on a lonely New England road, her tire blows out, leaving her stranded.
