|Will Ferrell (Bewitched) will star in a feature-film remake of the 1970s TV show Land of the Lost for Universal, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Universal acquired the feature rights from Sid and Marty Krofft, executive producers of the original NBC series, who will produce the feature for the studio, the trade paper reported. |
Adam McKay, a former Saturday Night Live writer who directed Ferrell in Anchorman, is attached to direct, with Chris Henchy and Dennis McNicholas signing on to adapt the screenplay, the trade paper reported.
Sigh...another favorite of my youth (along with "Bewitched") ruined by Will Ferrell.
