Will Ferrell to Bring ‘Manimal’ to the Big Screen


Will Ferrell is set to adapt cult TV series Manimal into a feature film.

The Anchorman star and his producing partner Adam McKay’s next project is reviving the short-lived crime series with a hybrid live-action/animated movie.

Manimal, which ran for just three months in 1983, starred Simon MacCorkindale as Dr. Jonathan Chase, who had the ability to transform into any animal in an effort to help police solve crimes.

Glen A. Larson, who created Manimal as well as shows such as Battlestar Galactica, Magnum, P.I. and Knight Rider, is also on board to produce the film with Ferrell and McKay.
