Posted Mon May 10, 2010 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Mickey Rourke has a face only his mama could love in this classic gangster flick hitting Blu-ray in July!

In another announcement to retailers, Lionsgate says 'Johnny Handsome' will be bringing his new-and-improved mug to high-definition on July 27.

Yep, that's also Morgan Freeman in the movie.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but the release will include brand new bonus material including three featurettes: "Noir in Nawlins" - an in-depth look at the film's evocative cinematography by Matthew Leonetti and how he created a modern film noir on the streets of New Orleans, "Double Crosser" - an all new interview with actor Lance Henriksen on his memorable role as the treacherous Rafe Garrett and "Dark Notes" - an all-new profile of composer Ry Cooder on his brooding score and his long history with director Walter Hill.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.99.
