Land of the Lost, the campy 1970s TV series from Sid and Marty Krofft, is getting the pre-strike treatment from Universal Pictures. With Will Ferrell aboard to star and Brad Silberling (Lemony Snicket) directing, the live-action movie has been fast-tracked to begin filming in March. Script comes from Dennis McNicholas (The Ladies Man) and Ferrell’s production partner, Chris Henchy (Entourage).

Ferrell will play a disgraced paleontologist who, with his assistant and tour guide, find themselves in a world inhabited by dinosaurs, monkey-people and of course, the evil Sleestaks. Now we just need to find out who’s playing Cha-Ka.
