Will Ferrell and Adam McKay Reteam for "Manimal" Action Comedy

Posted: July 22nd, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Will Ferrell and Adam McKay Reteam for "Manimal" Action ComedySubmit Comment
Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step-Brothers) have signed on to produce a big screen adaptation of the 1980s TV show "Manimal." The script is being written by Jay Martel and Ian Roberts, producers of "Key and Peele."

The TV show followed Dr. Jonathan Chase, a wealthy doctor with a mysterious past who morphed into animals in order to help the police fight crime. The film will be blend of live-action and animation.

The show was canceled after only eight episodes, but ended up developing a cult following. "'Manimal' has always been one of those elusive projects every producer dreams of taking to the silver screen," said McKay. "I know the movie will be funny and entertaining but will it be the first film to win a Pulitzer? We'll just have to see."

It would have been more fitting for them to make a movie based on the show that came on after Manimal...Mr. Smith

I remember that retarded show. There was a reason it got cancelled after only 8 episodes. That reason was stupidity. You can find them on youtube and see for yourself. Besides didn't Rob Schneider already make this film but call it something else?

Somebody should make an Automan movie instead. But not Will Farrell. Seriously, f*ck that guy.

Love that they will make the film of this but please not Will Ferrell.

I think the guy can be funny with the right material but not this.
