The Happy Madison produced comedy Strange Wilderness has been picked up by Paramount Pictures. According to Variety, the film will be released on January 25th, 2008.

Strange Wilderness follows the hosts of a failing wildlife show as they go searching for Bigfoot. The quest is meant to boost their dwindling ratings. Steve Zahn, Allen Covert, Jonah Hill, Justin Long, Jeff Garlin and Kevin Heffernan star in the Fred Wolf directed comedy.

Paramount's Rob Moore stated, "It's a terrific addition to our 2008 slate, and we think audiences are demonstrating a strong appetite for edgy R-rated comedy material, as evidenced by recent hits such as Knocked Up and Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan."
