According to Pajiba, Phoenix Entertainment and Intrigue Entertainment are set to produce a live action Dilbert movie.
Dilbert is one of the most popular (and one of the funniest, in my opinion) comic strips of all time, and the powers that be seem to think that director Ken Kwapis will be able to turn the comic strip into a workable live-action movie.
I think I speak for most people when I say I have my doubts. I don’t think I’ve ever seen any type of animation turned into something live action that wasn’t a complete mess. Animation gives the writer the freedom to do just about anything with their characters, and trying to put that in to the world where we live never seems to work.
What do you think? Can something like this work because of the strip’s success, or is the project doomed from the start?
