Universal has cut a deal to mount a live-action film based on Sid and Marty Krofft's '70s children's show Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, Variety reported.
The deal comes after Universal and Mosaic completed production on the $100 million Will Ferrell film Land of the Lost, another property that originated as a Saturday morning Krofft creation. Land of the Lost is set for release in June.
The script for Sigmund will be penned by Dana Gould, a writer-producer on The Simpsons.
Sony is developing a live-action version of the Kroffts' H.R. Pufnstuff and is in talks with director Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2).
