JAWS Blu-Ray in the Works, According to Spielberg

Quint of Aint it Cool News had a lengthy phone interview with Steven Spielberg who confirmed that the JAWS Blu-Ray is in the works. An excerpt is posted on the AICN site now, with the full interview to be posted Monday.

Quint: Is there a Jaws Blu-Ray in the works?

Steven Spielberg: Yes, there is. Yes, there is. I’ve already seen some of it. I don’t have a date yet, but there’s a Blu-Ray absolutely in the works.

Quint: I can’t wait, man. I love that the last DVD release actually had the original mono soundtrack on it as well. I wasn’t a fan of the remixed 5.1 sound – the splashing sounded canned.

Steven Spielberg: Oh, I know. I totally understand that. (In the future) there’s going to be no more digital enhancements or digital additions to anything based on any film I direct. I’m not going to do any corrections digitally to even wires that show.
