Get Smart gets direct to DVD sequel already
by Doc on Feb.28, 2008, under Movies
I hereby coin the term “DVDequel” (I did a Google search with no hits). Get Smart, starring Steve Carell (40 Year Old Virgin) and Anne Hathaway (Ella Enchanted) and opening June 20th, will get a “sequel” of sorts that will go direct to DVD – and come out around the same time. Get Smart’s Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control will focus on the minor characters of Bruce (Masi Oka, Heroes) and Lloyd (Nate Torrence, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip). Carell does not appear in it, nor is it directed by Get Smart‘s director, Peter Segal. Warner Brothers is apparently experimenting with a new idea, which will allow you to see a movie in a theater and then get a quick fix for more at home.
