Posted Thu Jul 21, 2011 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The classic war film is being prepped for high-definition this December to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

According to Disc Dish, 20th Century Fox will release 'Tora! Tora! Tora!' on Blu-ray on December 6.

Directed by Richard Fleischer ('Soylent Green') with Japanese sequences helmed by Kinji Fukasaku and Toshio Masuda–and starring Martin Balsam ('Psycho'), Joseph Cotten ('Citizen Kane') and Jason Robards ('All the President’s Men'), 'Tora! Tora! Tora!' is best remembered for utilizing footage from the actual attack on Pearl Harbor. This new edition will feature the extended Japanese cut of the film containing 10 minutes of previously unreleased footage.

Specs, supplements, and suggested list price for the Blu-ray are still undetermined at this time, but the release will apparently come housed in a limited edition digibook.
