Joy Division biopic set for DVD release

'Control' out in early 2008

The Joy Division film ‘Control’ is set for release on DVD next year.

The biopic about the band’s frontman Ian Curtis is out on February 11.

The movie was directed by the band’s visual collaborator Anton Corbijn, who has also worked with the likes of U2 and Depeche Mode, and was based on the book ’Touching From A Distance’ by Curtis’ widow Deborah.

Along with the film starring Samantha Morton and former 10,000 Things singer Sam Riley (pictured), the DVD release features extended scenes, a director’s commentary, a making of film and Corbijn’s ’Atmosphere 88’ video among the extras.
