Ron Howard Want To Make You 'Spy Vs. Spy' Movie

Spy Vs. Spy, the long-running Mad comic that has since 1961 pitted two pointy-faced freaks in an eternal back-and-forth of espionage, will soon be a film if Ron Howard can squeeze it in. Howard has several other projects in the wings--including a huge Dark Tower adaptation that's been delayed a bit--but if producer/writer David Koepp and screenwriter John Kamps can get a script together in time, Ron Howard would love to lend his mediocre vision to the project, reports Deadline. While the series has already been adapted into animated shorts, several video games, a board game, and an amazingly faithful series of Mountain Dew commercials, this long-gestating Warner Bros. adaptation would take the characters to the realm of live-action with a "physical and highly visual action comedy with two spies going mano a mano in ruthless fashion." No word on casting of the laughable spies, but Antonio Banderas and Lucy Liu sure have an edge.
