Warner Home Video have announced the US Blu-ray Disc release of Quo Vadis on 17th March 2009 priced at $28.99 SRP. Directed by Mervyn LeRoy and based on the Nobel Prize-winning novel by Henry Siekiewicz, Quo Vadis takes place in ancient Rome from 64 – 68 AD during the reign of Emperor Nero (Peter Ustinov). General Marcus Vinicius (Robert Taylor) returns home from war after three years to a city rife with conflict between the new Christianity and the corrupt Roman Empire.
