Did anyone else read that announcement that there may be a Land Of The Lost Movie as early as next year.
It is going to be done as a comedy starring Will Ferrell.
You know...it someone were to do this right it could be an incredible sci-fi action movie. Just imagine dinosaur F/X the quality of Jurassic Park. The Sleestaks would be pretty wicked too. I'm sure Will Ferrell would be a hoot to watch run from dinosaurs, but I wish they would steer clear of the comedy. Just my thoughts.

Hey Bigfoot...I just heard about today:

Ferrell to star in "Land of the Lost" movie
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - After playing an elf and an anchorman on the big screen, Will Ferrell is venturing into "Land of the Lost" for Universal.

The "Saturday Night Live" alumnus is attached to star in a "Land of the Lost" comedy feature based on the 1974-77 television series of the same name.

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. Jimmy Miller and Julie Wixson-Darmody also will produce via the Mosaic Media Group banner.

Adam McKay, a former "SNL" writer who directed Ferrell in "Anchorman," is attached to direct, with Chris Henchy and Dennis McNicholas signing on to adapt the screenplay.

The series revolved around forest ranger Rick Marshall and his children, Will and Holly, who are caught in a time vortex while rafting on the Colorado River and transported to a mysterious world populated by dinosaurs. The feature film will be an update of the series, which is due out on DVD this month.

Ferrell, currently onscreen in Woody Allen's "Melinda and Melinda," will next be seen in Universal's comedy "Kicking & Screaming" and will star opposite Nicole Kidman in this summer's "Bewitched." He is playing Franz Liebkind in the film version of Mel Brooks' Broadway hit "The Producers," to be released domestically by Universal on Dec. 21.

The Kroffts are behind such TV projects as "Lidsville, "The Bay City Rollers Show," "The Brady Bunch Hour," "Donny and Marie," "Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters" and "H.R. Pufnstuf," which Universal also made into a feature film.

Henchy has written for numerous television series, including "Spin City" and "Entourage," and was the creator of the series "Battery Park" and "I'm With Her." McNicholas formerly was a head writer on "SNL" and is writing the feature film "The Party," with Jay Roach attached to direct.

McKay, who co-wrote "Anchorman" with Ferrell and did a rewrite on "Bewitched," is directing the action-comedy feature "Talladega Nights," which he will co-write with Ferrell.

Say it isn't so....cripes! When will it ever end.

Bigfoot, I agree, if done the right way, that would make the most awesome movie, make it an adventure movie, like Jurassic Park, only the Land of the Lost story version of it. It could be totally cool, and just think what they could do with Cha-Ka's outfit now, even though he was definately scary back then. Sometimes I think the whole less is more thing is better.

I use to like Wil Farrell on SNL, but the movies he does now all stink, and I can't see this being something wonderful with him in it. Yuck.

I dug this out of the archives because there was an article in Entertainment Magazine by Diablo Cody about the upcoming "Land of the Lost" remake. Marty Krofft is producing, so hopefully it will keep some framework of the original 70's Saturday morning show. They are filming it right now, with a projected release date of next July.

Will Ferrell might just push it over the edge of the cliff, so we might need to search out Bigfoot to keep Elf in check. Didn't I ever tell you about Bumbles? Bumbles bounce.
