Will Ferrell to Get "Lost" in Another TV-to-Movie Adaptation

by | April 25, 2005 | Comments

A few years back funnyman Will Ferrell played a character called "Marshall Willenholly" in Kevin Smith‘s "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back," but who knew Kevin Smith was psychic? Yes, Will Ferrell has signed on to play the lead role in a big-screen version of the cult-classic kid’s series "Land of the Lost."The Universal project will be directed by frequent Ferrell collaborator Adam McKay ("Anchorman"), from a screenplay by Chris Henchy and Dennis McNicholas. For those a bit too young to have enjoyed "Land of the Lost" during after-school reruns, the show was about a dad and two precocious kids ("Marshall, Will and Holly! Now I get it!") who fell into a warp of some sort before ending up in a prehistoric world full of dinosaurs, Chakas, and Sleestaks. Will Ferrell is no stranger to TV-based movies; he previously appeared in "Starsky & Hutch," and his "Bewitched" is due to hit the screens this summer. No word yet on how closely the movie will adhere to the TV series, although according to Variety, "the kids won’t be part of the movie."
