Peter Segal & Pals 'Get Smart'

Peter Segal has been tapped to direct "," an upcoming action comedy which is the big-screen adaptation of the classic TV series for Warner Bros. Pictures. Created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, the series saw the late Don Adams act as Agent 86, a spy for CONTROL, fighting the evil forces of KAOS.

Whereas for the big screen version, which has just undergone a rewrite by Tom Astle and Matt Ember, moviegoers will see playing Adams' role as hapless secret agent Maxwell Smart. As of the story, it will contemporize the setting, with CONTROL falling on hard times and not getting the big government funding other spy agencies, like the CIA, do.
