Warner Bros. Prepping Get Smart Straight-To-DVD Spin Off!
In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, it seems that Masi Oka and Nate Torrence, two cast members from the big screen version of Get Smart (currently in production), "are set to reprise their characters for Get Smarter: Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control.
Masi Oka will reprise his role of Bruce and Torrence will reprise Lloyd, from the big screen Get Smart film.
This straight-to-DVD installment will be "put out by Warner Premiere, the new direct-to-DVD and direct-to-platform production arm of Warner Bros. Entertainment."
Get Smarter: Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control isn't so much a sequel as a continuation of Oka and Torrence's characters from the film. The plan is for the movie to hit DVD stores 10 days after Get Smart is released. The screenplay "is being written by Tom Astle and Matt Ember, who also wrote the Get Smart" film. The story will at times cross over with the feature film and the direct-to-DVD movie might even repurpose scenes from the feature."
The hope is start production this summer. No director has been hired yet.
