Live-Action Dilbert Movie in the Making
Posted 05.26.10 by reelz
Phoenix Pictures is reportedly developing a live-action Dilbert movie, based on the popular comics strip by creator by Scott Adams. The scoop, from Pajiba, says they've already secured the director, Ken Kwapis (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, License to Wed, He's Just Not That Into You).
While his past pictures don't sound like much of a fit for an office-based comedy, Kwapis does have some other credits that are more compatible for this matchup. Specifically, he has directed 12 episodes of the ultimate cubicle comedy, NBC's The Office, and has previously cast friend John Krasinski in his movies. Because of this connection, speculation abounds about Krasinski playing Dilbert, but that's all it is at this point.
If you're not familiar with the comic strip, here are some clips of the animated Dilbert show. What do you think — is a live-action version do-able?
