Producer Scott Rudin Developing Movie with 'Workaholics' Comedians

Producer Scott Rudin has already brought the hit Comedy Cenral show "South Park" into the feature film world, and it sounds like he's got another series from the funny network preparing to make the leap as well. THR has word that Rudin, who has also produced awards hits like The Social Network and No Country for Old Men, is looking to bring "Workaholics" to the big screen. For those who don't know, the series follows comedians Adam DeVine, Blake Anderson and Anders Holm as they are forced to enter the adult world as telemarketers while still getting caught up in some immature and wild shenanigans. More below!

Series co-creator and executive producer Kyle Newacheck (who directs most episodes and guest stars occasionally) is being lined up to direct the film. The series hails from Newacheck and the three aforementioned lead stars who started working together as a Los Angeles improv group called Mail Order Comedy. "Workaholics" is getting ready to start their fourth season in January, and right now it's not clear how soon a movie would get off the ground (if it actually comes together at all). While the series is undoubtedly funny, especially for children of the late 80s and early 90s, I'm not sure if the characters can sustain a feature length film. But the same could be said about "South Park" and that turned out great.

UPDATE: The original article from THR said this was an adaptation of the "Workaholics" TV show, but Scott Rudin is just producing a movie unrelated to the series, but with the creative team and cast. Carry on.

This article is misleading. It's just a movie with the team, not about the show.

Actually, the original THR article said that this project was an adaptation of the "Workaholics" TV show. You'll see a note at the bottom: "Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that the project was an adaptation of the Workaholics TV series." We've updated our story accordingly.
