‘Workaholics’ Movie in Development from Stars and Producers?
Comedy Central slacker comedy ‘Workaholics‘ has steadily grown in popularity from its 2011 debut to the point where the cable network ordered fourth and fifth seasons to begin airing in 2014, while the stars made regular rounds at Comic-Con. But has the comedy team behind the series begun work on a feature-length adaptation?
Close, but not quite. The Hollywood Reporter initially broke word that Scott Rudin had teamed with stars Adam DeVine, Blake Anderson, Anders Holm and producers Kyle Newacheck, Connor Pritchard and Dominic Russo to begin work on a ‘Workaholics’ movie, though the article was later corrected to say that the project would not in fact be a feature adaptation of the breakout Comedy Central series.
Still, the as-yet-untitled feature will feel tonally in line with ‘Workaholics,’ given that series leads DeVine, Anderson and Holm will both write and star in the comedy, with frequent director and series co-creator Kyle Newacheck also taking directing duties on the film. Meanwhile, the 13-episode ‘Workaholics’ season 4 will premiere on Comedy Central in January 2014, with production on an already-ordered fifth season to take place at a future date.
What say you, ‘Workaholics’ fans? Would the slacker comedy lend itself to the feature treatment, or are the cast and creators better off crafting an original feature comedy? Check out some highlights below, and give us your take in the comments!
