Ferrell In Land Of The Lost
"Even the Sleestak are crying."
"Even the Sleestak are crying."
Will Ferrell will star in a feature-film remake of the 1970s TV show Land of the Lost. 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.
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.
Will Ferrell's metastasized in our pop culture.
I won't be surprised if he had an uncredited cameo in Kung Fu Hustle.
Hmm . . . that gives me an idea for how Benedict could get Catholicism onto MTV. "Eminencely Punchable". Who wouldn't watch cardinals pummeling deserving celebrities?
I sincerely hope they take your idea and run it.
...but if they ever use any cardinal-themed catchphrase beginning with, then I shall have to hunt you down and kill you.
Hmm. While they're busy fucking things up, maybe they could add Jar Jar Binks, too?
who did you think farrell would be playing?
Is it just me or does anyone else find Farrell UN-funny. I just can't get past the annoying (and way tooooo long) cheerleader skit on SNL.
I can't fucking stand Will Farrell. He invariably plays "Will Farrell plays constipated guy" (the best way I can describe it).
My roommate wanted me to put Elf on my Netflix queue. When I outright refused, she tried the argument: "But it's Will Farrell!"
To which I could only reply: "Exactly."
Actually, by some miracle, Elf did not suck. I was forced to watch it and I was surprised by how funny it actually was. And I despise Will Farrell...
Lance Henriksen has more comedic talent.
Thanks. I just pictured Lance Henriksen in Will Farrell's role in "Zoolander". I think I prolapsed myself.
I'm just going to take your word on that "not sucking" thing. I trust you completely. By the way, are there any other movies you'd like to list as "not sucking?" Because, what with my trusting you and all, it would be a really handy list to have.
Probably one of the best zines I have ever seen in my life was this skate zine from Seattle called Sleestak. Ten years ago, everyone was like "where the hell did you get your name from?" and in a year, if I ever tell anyone about it, they'll say "oh, is that about that cowbell guy?" Great.
I think there was an episode of Land of the Lost where this beautiful woman appeared and one of the characters of the show started to have a romantic relationship with her. In the end, the woman exploded and she turned out to be a robot.
If it was this show, it scarred me for life. And if so, this robot/woman should appear in this movie and blow up Will Ferrell.
Ferrel is currently the lowest common denominator. He is neither funny or smart and can't really act. But for some reason he is still employed. Why is that?
The question posed by your last sentance is answered by the first sentance. :/
oh, yeah. I guess it is. Ok.
That movie set needs a visit from SRL. I agree that the show probably was crap, but I was also entralled by it. I never missed an episode, and it was one of the most effective carrot/stick combos for my parents to use in getting me to behave.
It's bad-enough that this simply should not be made into a feature film at all, but if they're using that jackass then they're planning on making it a comedy.
Maybe they can truly skull-fuck our childhoods by casting Chris Kattan and Anna Faris in supporting roles.
I think Chris Kattan is signed on to star in the Sigmund the Sea Monster movie.
If someone managed to blow up whichever building SNL is "created" in, I think the nation's collective IQ would raise about 5-7 points.
NBC Studios in NYC. Go nuts.
Take that back. It's a beautiful building.
On the other hand, if someone wanted to just sort of hang around outside and kick certain people in their voonerables when they came out of the building...
Tried. The benefits package is nice, but the interview process is a real bitch.
I'm willing to accept that this show was probably garbage, but when I was 8, I thought it was awesome.
The show may have been garbage taken as a whole. However, it must be noted that Larry Niven and Theodore Sturgeon wrote many of the scripts, with this fabulous side effect: the Sleestak language was complete and used consistently for all three seasons, with a couple hundred words, real grammar rules, all that language stuff. Rad.
It doesn't sound so bad; the article doesn't say which part he's signed on to play. I'm hoping that he's just going to reprise his role as Marshall Willenholly. If we're really lucky we'll even get detailed shots of his skull getting banged apart like a honeydew on the waterfall rocks. Then, for the rest of the movie, there could even be shots with his decomposing corpse in the background.
That's not hoping for too much, is it?
It probably is. He'll probably wind up playing Chaka.
