Will Ferrell is starring in the movie Land of the Lost, an upcoming feature film combining adventure, comedy and science fiction, which is based on the 1974 TV series of the same name. Land of the Lost is directed by Brad Silberling. It should be released on June 5, 2009.
Here below the first official Land of the Lost movie poster:
LAND OF THE LOST
Right place, wrong time.
In theaters June 5
“Will Ferrell stars as has-been scientist Dr. Rick Marshall, sucked into one and spat back through time. Way back. Now, Marshall has no weapons, few skills and questionable smarts to survive in an alternate universe full of marauding dinosaurs and fantastic creatures from beyond our world – a place of spectacular sights and super-scaled comedy known as the Land of the Lost.
Sucked alongside him for the adventure are crack-smart research assistant Holly (Anna Fariel) and a redneck survivalist (Danny McBride) named Will. Chased by T-Rex and stalked by painfully slow reptiles known as Sleestaks, Marshall, Will and Holly must rely on their only ally – a primate called Chaka (Jorma Taccone) to navigate out of the hybrid dimension. Escape from this routine expedition gone awry and they’re heroes. Get stuck, and they’ll be permanent refugees in the Land of the Lost.” (Source: Coming Soon)
The official poster of Land of the Lost looks quite faithful to the spirit of the original series. Just compare with the original opening of Land of the Lost:
I think that Land of the Lost will help Will Ferrell’s waning career: he was really needing such a movie to move out of the rut he was slowly getting into!
