New Line has announced an early June high-def debut for the Will Ferrell comedy 'Semi Pro,' which will hit Blu-ray as an unrated two-disc special edition.

Failing to generate the same box office excitement of Ferrell's recent sports-themed comedies, 'Semi Pro' only scored a meager $30 million domestic gross. New Line will give the Kent Alterman-directed satire another pass on Blu-ray June 3, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

New Line has not released supplement details yet for the Blu-ray, dubbed the "Let's Get Sweaty Edition, but with two full discs to fill we expect plenty of bonus features.

Tech specs include a never-before-seen Unrated cut of the film presented in 1080p video and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 7.1 Surround audio. Watch for full specs to be announced soon.

Retail for the Blu-ray has been set at $35.99.
