'Blood Simple' Blu-ray Postponed Indefinitely

Posted Thu Aug 12, 2010 at 09:00 AM PDT by

The Coen Brothers thriller originally slated for Blu-ray release earlier this month has now been taken off the release slate.

As previously reported, MGM/UA had announced 'Blood Simple' starring John Getz, Frances McDormand, and Dan Hedaya for Blu-ray release on August 3, but now that date has been put on hold with no reason given for the delay.

This noir tale of small town double-cross and murder was directed by Joel Coen and has been called "fiendishly clever" by Roger Ebert.
