Not satisfied with merely creating a big-screen adaptation of Get Smart, Warner Bros. now has plans to issue a direct-to-DVD sequel — 10 days after the movie release. And they’ve got a couple of NBC actors to star in it.
Masi Oka (Heroes) and Nate Torrence (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip) are currently shooting roles in the film Get Smart. Smart of course stars Steve Carrell and Anne Hathaway in the roles made famous by Don Adams and Barbara Feldon in the 1960s TV series. Oka plays CONTROL techie Bruce while Torrance will play a geeky analyst for the spy agency. Both are now set to reprise their roles in a Warner Bros. direct-to-DVD release.
Get Smart’s Bruce and Lloyd: Out of Control will parallel content in the feature film and will be released just 10 days after the Get Smart film, presumably to take advantage of the movie advertising. The DVD’s storyline will cross over with the feature film and may even recycle scenes from the movie. No director has been hired as yet for the DVD project but the studio hopes to shoot it this summer as Get Smart wraps. Stay tuned!
