Land of the Lost - First Pic Released

by Joey Paur

I remember watching this show as a kid. I usually watched it when I couldn't find anything else to watch on TV, so I'm not the biggest fan. But I do remember these crazy lizard creatures. This film is currently shooting and is starring Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, and Anna Friel from "Pushing Daisies", and is directed by the guy that did "Lemony Sniket's" Brad Silberling.

"The plot involves three adults (not a dad and two kids as on TV) accidentally thrust into a realm ruled by dinosaurs, monkey-men called Pakuni and the murderous Sleestak." USA Today Reports "In the '70s TV show, they were guys in lime-green pajamas — and looked it. The Sleestak are much sleeker now, but the film is largely a comedy, so the guy-in-a-suit look has its charms, Silberling says. "There is a sense of humor that I loved from the original show that can only come from an actor trying to negotiate the suit. If it became CG, they'd be too perfect. For the Sleestak to remain in people's memories, it tells you that it was about who was in the suit."One difference: Instead of toting crossbows, the Sleestak draw quills from their spines and fire them like arrows."

So it's a comedy. I can see that because... well...Will Ferrell is in it. I wonder how Will Ferrellish he will be. I'm sure it will be fun for the kids, and anyone that were fans of the show.
