    Ben Hur

    The Epic Action-Packed Drama on DVD January 30

    London, UK. 10/11/11 - The sweeping historical adventure Ben Hur debuts on DVD January 30 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Directed by Emmy® Award winner Steve Shill (TV's"Dexter") andwritten by Alan Sharp, this is an epic re-imagining of one of the greatest stories ever told, based on the novel by Lew Wallace.

    Taking the role of Ben-Hur is Joseph Morgan (Alexander, Immortals) who finds his lifelong friendship with Stephen Campbell Moore's (The History Boys, The Bank Job) Messala torn asunder. This spectacular drama also features special appearances from an array of stars including Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast, The Departed) as Arrius and Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire, Star Trek) as Emperor Tiberius. With stellar performances from Alex Kingston (TV's "Doctor Who", Like Crazy), Marc Warren (TV's "Hustle", Wanted), Emily VanCamp (TV's "Everwood", Brothers and Sisters) and Kristen Kreuk (TV's "Smallville"), this is an action-packed adaptation of the timeless story.

The gripping story follows two friends who become bitter enemies and the historic events of the time as told through the eyes of Judah Ben-Hur. Born a wealthy Jewish merchant's son, he is destined to live many lives: a powerful businessman, a dutiful slave, a fierce gladiator, a Roman nobleman, and finally... a conquering hero.
