Since being announced, 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 for a second time
Originally set for release on September 25, the Blu-ray was recently bumped to October 30. As of today, the new (and hopefully final) date is November 13.
The company tweeted, “This one has been a challenge for us so far! Please know we are trying our best to make it as solid of a release as we can. Thank u for your patience.”
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 soon. What Scream can confirm is that they will have a high-definition transfer of the theatrical cut. They are working on obtaining the extended version and will update 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.
