Will Ferrell and Adam McKay to produce adaptation of short film Henchmen

There is a feature film adaptation of the short film HENCHMEN: ILL SUITED by Adam Wood on the way with some pretty big names bringing it together. Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Chris Henchy have joined as executive producers and creative collaborators on the film with their Gary Sanchez Productions company.

Here is the film’s synopsis:

In a world of super-villains, evil schemes and global domination… someone has to take out the trash. Welcome to the world of Henchmen, third class. When a fresh-faced new recruit joins the Union of Evil, he is assigned to a motley crew of blue-collar workers led by fallen henchmen Hank. But when “The Kid” accidently steals the super villain’s ultimate weapon, Hank must break his “risk nothing” code to save the boy he’s befriended, even if it means becoming the one thing he has always hated…heroes.

Dennis McNicholas (Saturday Night Live) is finishing up a script rewrite, and Adam Wood will direct the feature-length adaptation himself. The short is animated so I imagine it will stay that way, but it’s actually not official that the feature film won’t be live-action.

Here is the teaser for the original short film:

Sounds promising but I can't hear the word Henchmen without immediately thinking of The Venture Brothers.

This should still be an animated feature. If we can't get an Incredibles sequel, this will still do just fine.
