New Line has issued more details on its upcoming Blu-ray release of 'Shoot 'Em Up,' and once again the studio impresses with top-shelf tech specs.

As we first reported a few days back, New Line is planning a feature-packed next-gen debut for the Clive Owen/Paul Giamatti/Monica Bellucci actioner, which is due to hit Blu-ray day-and-date with the standard-def DVD on January 1, 2008.

Today we can report that in addition to 1080p video (codec TBA), New Line is planning a 7.1 DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio track for the 'Shoot 'Em Up' Blu-ray.

This marks the second such track to be confirmed by the studio, following its dual-format announcement of 'Pan's Labyrinth' a couple of weeks back.

In what's becoming a welcome trend, New Line has also confirmed that 'Shoot 'Em Up' will be its latest next-gen title to include a picture-in-picture video commentary, featuring behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and crew. (Thus far, the studio has yet to announce a next-gen title that doesn't include a PIP video commentary.)

Finally, the studio has provided a first peek at the Blu-ray cover art, which follows below:

As we've previously reported, due to region coding concerns, New Line is holding off on releasing its more recent theatrical titles on HD DVD until after they have completed their theatrical runs worldwide. 'Shoot 'Em Up' on HD DVD is expected to follow the Blu-ray by 2-3 months.
