'Piranha' Blu-ray Delayed

Posted Tue Jan 26, 2010 at 11:00 AM PST by

The 1978 Roger Corman cult classic originally slated for an April Blu-ray release has been delayed.

As previously reported, Shout Factory was planning on releasing the Joe Dante directed horror film 'Piranha' on Blu-ray on April 6, but that date has now been pushed to August 3.

The reason given for the delay is that the supplements still have to be finalized, despite the remake coincidentally also being pushed to an August theatrical release.

Specs and supplements still haven't been revealed yet, but list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $27.99.

You can find the latest specs for 'Piranha' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's now indexed under August 3.
