The Hoax (R2) in February

Momentum Pictures have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Hoax on 11th February 2008 priced at £15.99. Director Lasse Hallström tells the unbelievable true story of the man who nearly pulled off the biggest media scam of the 20th century in The Hoax.

Based on Clifford Irving’s controversial autobiography by the same name, Richard Gere assumes the identity of Clifford Irving, a novelist-turned-literary-scam-artist who in the 1970s penned a bogus autobiography of reclusive playboy billionaire Howard Hughes. Screenwriter William Wheeler based his “Hoax” script on Irving's own tell-all tome by the same name. Alfred Molina, Marcia Gay Harden, Hope Davis, Stanley Tucci and Julie Delpy also star.

Almost a barebones release, the film is presented in 1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen with English DD2.0 audio and optional English SHD subtitles. The sole extra is the original trailer.
