Brent broke the story of the release on Twitter and Tahmoh tweeted soon after:
The boys and I are thinking its time to release The Hostage. Perfect movie for the month of Oct and in the spirit of Halloween! Within 24hrs.I am not going to be able to be online much of the day to provide the extra details that Brent promises. But keep an eye on @Brent_Cote, @alekspaun, and @TahmohPenikett on twitter and I'm sure you'll get fed the link!
