Paramount Home Entertainment has announced that the Samuel L. Jackson-Christina Ricci erotic drama 'Black Snake Moan' will make its Blu-ray and HD DVD debut this June.

The down 'n' dirty flick from 'Hustle & Flow' director Craig Brewer paid homage to the gritty exploitation flicks of the '70s, although it found few takers during its recent theatrical release.

Paramount plans on givinbg the flick a boost on high-def, bestowing the "special edition" banner on the title when it hits Blu-ray and HD DVD day-and-date with standard DVD release on June 26.

No specs yet, but the disc comes billed as boasting plenty of supplemental features, so we'll certainly keep you posted as more news comes in.

In the meantime, we've added 'Black Snake Moan' to both our Blu-ray Release Schedule and our HD DVD Release under June 26, where it joins Brewer's 'Hustle & Flow,' which Paramount announced for next-gen release last month.
