Sony Pictures has announced its latest catalog release for Blu-ray, marking an early-April date for the romantic comedy 'Roxanne.'

A loose retelling of the classic tale Cyrano de Bergerac, the Steve Martin-Daryl Hannah charmer will make its Blu-ray debut on April 7.

Tech Specs will see a BD-25 single-layer disc with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

Despite 'Roxanne' being one of the sleeper hits of 1987, Sony isn't planning any supplements for the Blu-ray release.

As with all Sony titles, the disc will also come with BD-Live connectivity, though no exclusive content has been announced.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $28.95.
