After a delay of over a year, Sony has rescheduled the Blu-ray debut of the classic Western 'The Professionals' for June.

First announced for high-def release back in October 2006, Sony subsequently bumped the Burt Lancaster favorite, with no new date in sight. The studio has now re-scheduled the Blu-ray for June 10.

In addition to the previously-announced featurette "Memories of 'The Professionals,'' Sony has also added two new retrospective making-ofs: "'The Professionals' - A Classic" and "Burt Lancaster - A Profile."

Sony has not yet issued updated tech specs for the rescheduled Blu-ray, but we'll keep you posted.

Suggested retail price has been set at $28.95.
