Get Smart is an upcoming 2008 film adaptation of Mel Brooks and Buck Henry’s hit 1960s spy parody television show Get Smart. The film will star Steve Carell as Maxwell Smart and Anne Hathaway as Agent 99. Alan Arkin will play the Chief. Masi Oka, Terence Stamp, Dwayne Johnson and Dalip “The Great Khali” Singh will also star. Bill Murray and Patrick Warburton make cameos in the film, as does Bernie Kopell, who played Siegfried in the original series. A nod to the original TV series star also may be present in the film. The trailer includes a scene with Agents 86 and 99 onboard a jumbo jet flagged as “Yarmy International Airways.” Yarmy is the real last name of original Get Smart series star Don Adams.

Shooting began March 21, 2007 and wrapped on June 25, 2007. It is rated PG-13 by the MPAA “for some crude humor, action violence and language.”

Part of the film was shot in the McGill University campus in Montreal, Quebec.
