Strange Wilderness - A Comedy About Bigfoot - Heads for January

Get this, they're making a comedy about bigfoot! Or for that matter, it's already made (and already got an R rating). Sounds a bit like that trippy scene in Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny, but full length. The film is titled Strange Wilderness, produced by Adam Sandler's Happy Madison, and stars Steve Zahn, Allen Covert, Jonah Hill, Justin Long, Jeff Garlin and Broken Lizard's Kevin Heffernan. Haven't heard of it before? That's because it just changed hands in Hollywood, from the bad guys at Fox to the good guys at Paramount.

Paramount just acquired the distribution rights to the film, which was originally at Fox where it received an R rating for "non-stop language, drug use, crude and sexual humor". Now it's slated to hit on January 25th, 2008, right at the tip of the bad movie season early in the year.

The story follows the hosts (Zahn and Covert) of fictional wildlife TV show "Strange Wilderness," which is headed toward extinction because of bad ratings; they hatch a scheme to find the one animal that can save the show -- Bigfoot. The film is directed and co-written by Fred Wolf, who wrote Black Sheep, Dirty Work, and Joe Dirt, but this is his first time directing.

Sounds kind of fun, but they're going to be dumping it in January, which shows hardly any confidence, especially considering another studio already dumped it entirely. Who knows, it could be a January 2008 sleeper hit, or a flop, only time will tell!
