When Hollywood sets their sights on an adaptation, you never quite know how it’s going to turn out.  Is the tone going to be similar to the original and recreate what made it endearing, or will it be a tongue-in-cheek contemporary take?  Either approach can fail spectacularly or succeed beyond all expectations.  Now when the property in question is the short-lived TV series Manimal, it’s easy to write it off.  Enter Adam McKay and Will Ferrell.  You know what you’re getting with Gary Sanchez Productions, who might just be the best team to tackle the oddity that will be the Sony Pictures Animation live-action/animation hybrid, Manimal.  Hit the jump for more.

Warner Bros. is reportedly in negotiations to pick up Get Hard, a comedy pitch that would be developed as a star vehicle for funnymen Will Ferrell (Anchorman) and Kevin Hart (The 40 Year Old Virgin). The picture would star Ferrell as a milquetoast but rich investment bank manager who gets wrongly convicted of a crime and sentenced to a maximum security prison. He then hires a street-smart guy (Hart), who normally washes his car, in order to prepare for doing hard time in thirty days. Deadline also reports that the script will be written by Ian Roberts and Jay Martel (Key & Peele). Ferrell is currently busy shooting the sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues, while Hart is prepping for his next role in Ride Along

If you’re a fan of  Adam McKay’s work (Anchorman, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights) and/or a fan of musical numbers, you should be pretty happy with this news. It sounds as if Anchorman 2 is going to feature at least one musical sequence with a bit more movement to it; no word yet on if any jazz flute will be featured. McKay also revealed a bit more about the plot of the sequel, which is set in the world of 24 hour news and will still probably not include a Ghost Rider cameo. The writer/director is currently revising the script with star Will Ferrell and, though shooting is expected to start in March, there is no release date scheduled as of now. Hit the jump to see what McKay had to say.

I Love You Man movie image - slice (1).jpg

How can you not be down with Paul Rudd? His career renaissance is one of the best parts about comedies in the 21st century, and since The 40-Year-Old Virgin he’s been an actor you can count on to just take it home. A lot of this rebirth has to do with his great turn in Wet Hot American Summer (a film that helped launch a number of talents, like Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Banks), but audiences seem to have fallen in love with him all over again. As well they should. And with I Love You, Man and Role Models he even gets to headline films, though paired with another comic actor. My review of I Love You, Man after the jump.
