In an early alert to retailers, Fox has set a March arrival for the action smash 'Hitman,' which will come to Blu-ray in a never-before-seen unrated cut.

Scoring nearly $100 million at the worldwide box office, the Timothy Olyphant-Dougray Scott starrer will debut on Blu-ray in a new 94-minute unrated cut on March 11, day-and-date with the standard-def DVD.

Tech specs are set to include 1080p video and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround audio, along with French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and subtitle options.

Due to the early nature of the retail announcement, the disc's supplemental details were not yet available, but an official media release is expected shortly -- we'll keep you posted.

Fox has set a suggested $39.95 list price for the Blu-ray.
