No release date yet, but we can exclusively report that the technicolor classic 'Son of Pale Face' is headed to high-def disc.

A senior executive at indie distributor BCI told us that the company is currently preparing the title for high-def release, and that the test footage looks "amazing."

A sequel to Bob Hope's earlier hit, 'Pale Face,' the 1952 film reunites Hope with Jane Russell, and adss in singing cowboy Roy Rogers and Trigger the Wonder Horse for good measure.

The technicolor film's DVD release in 2000 was praised for its pure and brilliant colors, and we can only expect will look even more brilliant in glorious high-definition.

BCI is officially a dual-format supporting studio, so this one's likely to hit both Blu-ray and HD DVD.

In anticipation of a future announcement for 'Son of Pace Face,' we've added a listing for the title under the "Release Dates Pending" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule and HD DVD Release Schedule. Stay tuned!
