Jamie Foxx Pens “Laverne & Shirley” Movie

Director Garry Marshall and actor Jamie Foxx are still pursuing their planned film adaptation of classic sitcom “Laverne and Shirley”.

First mentioned during press for “Valentine’s Day” last month, Marshall told TV Guide over the weekend that Foxx is in fact penning the script which is a “whole different modern day take on how they came up on the streets during difficult times”.

They still have two “Valentine’s Day” co-stars in mind for the lead roles – “Jennifer Garner would play Laverne and Jessica Biel would play Shirley” says Marshall.

Foxx also plans to write in roles for original sitcom stars Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams.
