Schlemiel, schlimazel, hasenpfeffer incorporated! Are we really going to see a big-screen version of "Laverne & Shirley"? We are if this article isn't some sort of early April Fool's joke.
According to TV Guide, "Laverne & Shirley" producer -- and Penny Marshall's brother -- Garry Marshall says that a movie's in the works, and he's hoping it'll star Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel. Um, whaaaaa? But, wait -- there's more: It's being written by...Jamie Foxx.
Sure, Foxx was a comedian before he became a Serious Actor. But why would Marshall go with an Oscar-winning actor with little writing experience to script this odd-sounding remake? That's like asking Meryl Streep to write and star in a movie version of "Mork & Mindy."
Hmm -- come to think of it, that'd probably be pretty sweet.
