Comic “Dilbert” Becomes Live-Action

Ken Kwapis (“The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” “License to Wed”) is attached to direct a live-action film adaptation of Scott Adams’ comic strip “Dilbert” for Phoenix Entertainment and Intrigue Entertainment reports Pajiba.

Kicking off in 1989 and still running today, the comic follows an engineer in a white-collar, micromanaged company and satirises office politics and bureaucracy. He also has a pet named Dogbert.

Kwapis has a familiarity with the subject matter considering he has helmed quite a few episodes of the rather similar sitcom “The Office”. Tariq Jalil (“Marmaduke”) is producing.

The comic was previously adapted into an animated series in 1999.
