In an early alert to retailers, Lionsgate has announced it is planning to bring the Oscar-winning 'Monster's Ball' to Blu-ray in early November.

Earning a Best Actress Oscar for Halle Berry, as well as featuring one of the most acclaimed performances from the late Heath Ledger, the Marc Forster-directed drama will make its high-def debut on November 4.

There are no tech specs or supplemental details available at this early date. However, as 'Monster's Ball' was released as part of Lionsgate's "Signature Series" line of special edition DVDs, we'll hope for a comparable batch of extras. Watch this space.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.98.
