Paramount Enters The Wilderness

Paramount Pictures has acquired distribution rights to Happy Madison’s “Strange Wilderness” starring Steve Zahn, Allen Covert, Jonah Hill, Justin Long, Jeff Garlin and Kevin Heffernan reports Variety.

The story follows the hosts (Zahn and Covert) of fictional wildlife TV show “Strange Wilderness,” which is headed toward extinction because of bad ratings; they hatch a scheme to find the one animal that can save the show — Bigfoot.

Fred Wolf co-wrote and helmed the comedy which is now scheduled for a January 25th release.
