Hollywood is currently crazy for adapting cult-classic television series into movies. Here's the scoop on a few small-screen favorites bound for the big screen in the near future.The HoneymoonersIn theaters Cedric the Entertainer as Ralph Kramden and Mike Epps as his pal Norton. What to expect It's an ethnic twist on the classic comedy, but we're holding out for at least one commemorative "Hamina, hamina, hamina!" In theaters Spring 2005 BewitchedStars Nicole Kidman as Samantha, Will Ferrell as hubby Darrin and Shirley MacLaine as Endora. What to expect Utter zaniness when a real nose-twitching witch is hired to play Samantha in a movie adaptation of Bewitched. It's a show within a movie about a show (got that?) in Nora Ephron's take on the hit series. In theaters July 8, 2005 The Dukes of HazzardStars Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville as Bo and Luke Duke, Jessica Simpson as their hottie cousin Daisy, and Willie Nelson as Uncle Jesse. What to expect It's been 20 years since the series ended, so the General Lee better jump even higher and Daisy's shorts better be even shorter if they plan on pulling in a new generation. In theaters July 29, 2005 SerenityStars The cast of the short-lived Fox series Firefly — including Nathan Fillion and Gina Torres — returns for this space Western. What to expect With Buffy creator Joss Whedon writing and directing, this could be a fun ride. In theaters September 30, 2005 Get SmartStars The Daily Show's Steve Carell as secret agent man Maxwell Smart. What to expect It'll be tough to top Don Adams, but Carell has the klutzy charisma to make this update, cowritten by Mel Brooks, appropriately stupid. In theaters Late 2005 Aeon FluxStars Charlize Theron as a live-action version of the butt-kicking heroine from MTV's animated series. What to expect Thousands of teenage boys begging for a grudge match between Theron's Flux and Angelina Jolie's Lara Croft. In theaters 2005 Miami ViceStars It's looking like Colin Farrell as Crockett and Jamie Foxx as Tubbs. What to expect Sexy cops who don't wear socks but do seem manly in pastel colors? We can't wait! Plus, Michael Mann is set to write and direct. In theaters 2006 To learn about more TV faves headed for the big screen, read the new issue of TV Guide on newsstands now.
