The 1958 sci-fi classic will be buzzing to Blu-ray next month!

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is working on 'The Fly (1958)' for a Blu-ray release on September 10.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 4.0 soundtrack, and supplements include: Audio Commentary with Actor David Hedison and Film Historian David Del Valle; Biography: Vincent Price; Fly Trap: Catching a Classic; and Fox Movietone News.
