Image Entertainment has announced plans to bring the 1976 John Carpenter action thriller 'Assault on Precinct 13' to Blu-ray in early December.

Considered one of Carpenter's best (if often overlooked) gems, 'Assault on Precinct' has since achieved cult classic status (and was eventually remade in 2005).

Image will debut the Blu-ray version on December 2.

No word yet on tech specs or supplement details, but hopes are for a package similar to Image's previously-released special edition DVD. We'll keep you posted.

Suggested list price has been set at $29.99.
