Potentially good TV show remake: Land of the Lost

Here's some potentially good news. According to E! Online, Will Ferrell has signed up to play Rick Marshall in a film version of Land of the Lost. For those who aren't familiar with the Sid and Marty Krofft creation, Rick Marshall and his two children are on a rafting trip when they are somehow transported to another world. They have to deal with dinosaurs, Sleestaks, Chaka and, of course, each other. It was a very silly, very low-budget show that didn't take itself too seriously, which is why I think casting Will Ferrell in it would be a great idea. Hopefully the writers and producers will try to stay at least somewhat true to the original story instead of going off on a tangent, like the Bewitched crew did.
