Land of the Lost

I have to admit that a live action Jetsons movie doesn’t get me excited, but on the other hand the idea of Rodriguez taking on Land of the Lost is a great idea! Of course I’d like to see them use the sort A+ writers like they had on the old 70s TV series:

Future or past for Rodriguez?

“Grindhouse might have taken a drubbing at the boxoffice, but director Robert Rodriguez is very much in demand. He is in talks to direct a live-action feature version of futuristic 1960s cartoon “The Jetsons” for Warner Bros. Pictures, being produced by Denise Di Novi and Donald De Line.

At the same time, the helmer has met with Will Ferrell and Universal execs for helming duties on “Land of the Lost,” based on the 1970s Sid and Marty Krofft fantasy TV series to which Ferrell is attached to star. While no offers have been made, sources say “Jetsons” has the edge because its script, whose latest draft is by Adam Goldberg (“Fanboys”), is further along.”
