After a series of false starts, indie distributor BCI is apparently back in the high-def game with the announcement of 'Ultimate Force' on Blu-ray and HD DVD this November.

Featuring martial arts star Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic in what was intended to be his first big-screen star vehicle, 'Ultimate Force' ultimately went straight to video in 2006. But now, according to Home Media Magazine, BCI is planning to give the low-budget action spectacle a second shot on high-def when it debuts the film on both Blu-ray and HD DVD November 13.

Tech specs and list price have not yet been announced, but supplemental features are said to include a making-of featurette, an interview with Filipovic and the film's theatrical trailer.

'Ultimate Force' marks a delayed high-def debut for BCI. The distributor had originally announced a series of cult classics for release on HD DVD in late 2006, including 'Galaxina,' 'That's the Way of the World' and 'Golgo 13, but those titles were ultimately delayed without explanation, and still have yet to see release.

Now it seems BCI is taking another shot at high-def support, this time on both HD DVD and Blu-ray.

We've added listings for 'Ultimate Force' to our Blu-ray Release Schedule and HD DVD Release Schedule under November 13. We'll keep you posted on any future announcements from BCI as they occur.
