'The Nutty Professor' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Jan 10, 2012 at 10:00 AM PST by

The comedy remake starring Eddie Murphy is in the works for Blu-ray this year.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal says 'The Nutty Professor' will hit Blu-ray on March 6.

The Oscar-winner for Best Make-Up follows grossly overweight Professor Sherman Klump who takes a special chemical that turns him into the slim but obnoxious Buddy Love.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: The Lew Wasserman Era and Unforgettable Characters.

Suggested list price for the release is $19.98.
