Jamie Foxx Writing The Script For “Laverne And Shirley” Movie Adaptation

“Sclemeel, schlemazel, hasenfeffer incorporated. We’re gonna do it!” Well, actually Garry Marshall is going to do it — direct a movie adaptation of the classic TV show “Laverne and Shirley,” that is. For those of us old enough to remember enjoying the “Happy Days” spin-off when it originally aired from 1976 to 1983, or who caught it in syndication in the decades that have followed, this may come as good news. Or not. After all, when are movie versions of TV shows ever done well? And when I tell you that Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel are tapped to play the title characters, respectively, the news may make you shudder even more. But there’s a twist! The script is being written by the multi-talented Jamie Foxx, which makes me wonder if they might be able to pull this thing off yet. Time will tell, I guess. Still, I know Marshall could do better than casting Garner and Biel. Who would you like to see play Laverne and Shirley instead? TVGuide suggests Chloe Sevigny as Laverne and Ginnfer Goodwin as Shirley, which sounds like a good bet. OMG! What about Angelina Jolie as Laverne and Jennifer Aniston as Shirley? I’d pay to see that.
