Since being announced last month, Scream Factory‘s Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release of Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Next Generation has already hit a couple snags, the first of which was the company being forced to remove stars Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger from the cover art. Now, the release date has been pushed back.
Originally set for release on September 25, the Blu-ray will now arrive on October 30.
Here are the early details on the release:
• This will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” that will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date). U.S. and Canada territories (Region A).
• Extras and specs are still in progress and will be announced later in August. What we can confirm today is that we will have a high-definition transfer of the theatrical cut. We are working on obtaining the extended version and will update you on the progress in the future.
• The newly-commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from Joel Robinson (Silent Night Deadly Night, The Serpent and the Rainbow, Ninja III, etc). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will the original theatrical poster design.
Full extras will be announced in September.
