Universal seemed to get cold feet after making some HD-DVD announcements yesterday.

In a story from The Digital Bits, it seems the studio plans to release The Breakfast Club and The Deer Hunter on HD-DVD on December 26.

"The Breakfast Club will be a DVD/HD-DVD Combo disc (SRP $34.98), while The Deer Hunter will be HD-DVD only (SRP $29.98). Both titles will feature Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 audio."

Then mysteriously after posting this they took it off their site. There is no word yet on whether it is or isn't happening (or what the extras might be), but we will surely keep you posted as soon as we know more.
