Super-duper stars John Travolta (Gotti) and Morgan Freeman (Driving Miss Daisy, Lucy) co-star (for the first time ever) in the no-rish crime thriller The Poison Rose.

Travolta plays Carson Philips, a hard-drinking L.A. private eye who takes a case in his old hometown of Galveston, Texas. While searching for a missing woman, Philips must confront a crime boss (Freeman), a shady doctor (Brendan Fraser, Furry Vengeance), a sexy club singer (Kat Graham, TV’s The Vampire Diaries), his former lover (Famke Janssen, X-Men franchise) — and his own dark, disturbing past.

Based on the novel of the same name by Richard Salvatore and directed by George Gallo (the writer of Midnight Run and Bad Boys), the R-rated film also features Peter Stormare (The Big Lebowski) and Robert Patrick (Gangster Squad) in its cast.

The Blu-ray and DVD include an audio commentary with director George Gallo and writer/producer Salvatore
