Paramount Postpones 'Zodiac' Blu-ray, HD DVD to Prep Additional Bonus Features

Posted Thu Jul 26, 2007 at 09:00 AM PDT by

Paramount Home Entertainment has announced it is postponing the September Blu-ray and HD DVD release of 'Zodiac' to prepare a more feature-packed special edition.

The David Fincher serial killer drama was originally announced for a day-and-date debut with the standard-def DVD version (which just hit stores this past Tuesday, July 24), but the studio later postponed the next-gen versions, giving them a new date of September 18.

Now, Paramount has informed us that although the title has been pulled from its Blu-ray and HD DVD release schedule, the studio is currently beginning work on a far more robust, feature-laden special edition of 'Zodiac.' This retooled set will include the extensive involvement of Fincher himself, and given the well-received DVD special editions of his past work including 'Fight Club' and 'Panic Room,' it should be worth the wait.

With this latest news, we've moved 'Zodiac' to the "Street Dates Postponed" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule and HD DVD Release Schedule. We'll keep you posted as soon as the title is officially rescheduled.
