Posted Mon Aug 17, 2009 at 10:00 AM PDT by

As previously reported, Michael Mann's 'Heat' starring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, and Val Kilmer will hit Blu-ray on November 3.

The Blu-ray release will feature 1080p/VC-1 video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements including: Commentary by writer/producer/director Michael Mann; True Crime: Recalling the real-life Chicago Cop and criminal whose exploits inspired the movie; Crime Stories: The screenplay's 20-year history and how the movie finally got greenlit; Into the Fire: Filming in L.A., cast training, shooting the climactic downtown heist and post-production; Pacino and De Niro: The Conversation: anatomy of this historic on-screen showdown; Return to the Scene of the Crime: revisiting the film's real-life L.A. locations years later; 11 additional scenes; and theatrical trailers.

It's also worth noting that the Blu-ray will feature "new content changes supervised by Michael Mann." No details on this have been revealed, although it does appear that he may be shaving off about two minutes from the film.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $28.99.
