Warner Premiere has set an early-July Blu-ray debut for the 'Get Smart' direct-to-video spin-off 'Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control.'

Due in theaters June 20, 'Get Smart' stars Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway in a big-budget update of the famous Maxwell Smart spy series of the '60s.

In an precedent-setting marketing move, Warner earlier this year announced they would be debuting a direct-to-video spin-off film, 'Get Smart's Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control,' on DVD July 1 as a tie-in with its big-screen cousin.

Now the studio has announced a Blu-ray version for the same date, which will see 'Get Smart' stars Masi Oka of ('Heroes' fame) and Nate Torrance, in their own misadventure as two techies at the CONTROL organization who get mixed up in further spy complications.

Warner has not yet announced any tech specs or supplement details for the Blu-ray, but we'll keep you posted.

Suggested list price has been set at $35.99.
