The 1944 film noir classic will be heading to high-definition in February!

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is working on 'Laura' for a Blu-ray release on February 5.

A definitive film noir classic, Laura tells the shocking story of a Park Avenue society beauty murdered in her apartment, which brings Detective Mark McPherson (Dana Andrews) to New York's most elegant neighborhood. As he tries to get inside the head of the victim, Laura Hunt (Gene Tierney), he also questions the men in her life - the acerbic critic Waldo Lydecker (Clifton Webb) and playboy fiancé Shelby Carpenter (Vincent Price). Lulled by her stunning portrait, fine liquor and classical music, McPherson doesn't know he's in for a heart-stopping shock with the sudden appearance of a woman who seems to be Laura herself. Steeped in suspense, heightened reality and witty sophistication, Laura leads to a shocking climax.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
