Chapter 27 (R2) in April
Momentum Pictures have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Chapter 27 on 28th April 2008 priced at £12.99. Jared Leto and Lindsay Lohan star in first-time writer-director JP Schaefer’s version of the reasons behind the killing of John Lennon. Following the events leading up to the moment David Chapman shot Lennon five times in the back after the singer had autographed an album cover for him, Chapter 27 is a play on JD Salinger’s classic novel The Catcher in the Rye, which ends on chapter 26. Chapman related and modeled his life after the book’s main character Holden Caulfield, and it was the book he held onto at the time he infamously shot John Lennon. Chapman claimed the book held the reasons behind the heinous act.
Extras include a making-of and the original trailer.
