Fox launches its Blu-ray Filmmakers Signature Series line with two films from director Danny DeVito this September.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox says 'The War of the Roses' is coming to Blu-ray on September 18.

Welcome to the Filmmakers Signature Series on Blu-ray. Enjoy this outrageously funny comedy from director Danny DeVito with high quality picture and sound, true to the director's vision, thanks to an all-new HD transfer. This special edition also includes deleted scenes, commentary by director Danny DeVito, a conversation with producer James L. Brooks and more. When the seemingly perfect marriage of Oliver (Michael Douglas) and Barbara (Kathleen Turner) Rose ends in divorce, the stage is set for the ultimate battle of the exes. Ignoring the pleas of Oliver's level-headed attorney, Gavin (Danny DeVito), the Roses inflict as much misery as humanly possible on each other, as they fight it out to the bitter end.

Fox has also slated 'Hoffa' for Blu-ray on the same date.

This all-new HD transfer provides Danny DeVito's powerful epic about legendary union organizer Jimmy Hoffa with exceptional picture and sound quality. Also included are an exclusive booklet about the making of the film, commentary by Danny DeVito, DeVito's speech at a Teamsters convention, the shooting script, anecdotes from Teamsters, news coverage, excised scenes and more! Three-time Oscarr Winner Jack Nicholson* packs a wallop as Hoffa, the Teamsters' most influential and controversial crusader. Along with his friend Bobby Ciaro (DeVito), Hoffa faces danger at every turn. As he fights for workers' rights, Hoffa locks horns with industry management, organized crime and the U.S. Attorney General. Four years after serving a prison term, Hoffa disappears, in one of America's most fascinating unsolved crime mysteries.

Suggested list price for each Blu-ray is $24.99.
