Posted Mon Feb 6, 2012 at 10:00 AM PST by

Ronald Neame's 1974 film starring Jon Voight and Maximilian Schell is in the works for a May Blu-ray release.

In an early announcement to retailers, Image Entertainment has revealed 'The Odessa File' for Blu-ray on May 15.

The year is 1963. The place: Hamburg, Germany. An elderly Jewish man commits suicide, leaving a diary which falls into the hands of a freelance newspaperman, Peter Miller (Voight). The diary documents the unspeakable crimes of cruelty, torture and mass murder perpetrated by SS Captain Eduard Roschmann (Schell), commandant of the notorious wartime deathcamp at Riga, Latvia. Miller launches a personal manhunt to track down Roschmann, an investigation that leads him into the very heart of Odessa, a powerful secret organization formed by the SS to protect and re-establish its fugitive members throughout the world. When Miller finds Roschmann, he learns that the former Nazi is now the leader of a weaponry complex of international, strategic consequence.

Specs and supplements are still unknown, but suggested list price is $17.97.
