Kath and Kim feature film in the works

What a way to celebrate International Women’s Day. Screen Australia today announced 15 new projects they have invested in, the most notable being a feature film adaptation of the beloved Aussie TV show Kath and Kim.

The Kath and Kim Filum (sic) will reunite Jane Turner and Gina Riley as the Fountain Lakes-frequenting mother and daughter. The duo (also writing the script) will “head overseas on a whirlwind tour of love, lust and revolution”. Ted Emery will direct.

Other features include Franco Di Chiera’s comedy Big Mamma’s Boy, Peter Templeman’s romcom The 20-Something Survival Guide, and Jeremy Hogarth’s IMAX documentary The Last Great Apes.

Screen Australia will also fund ZAC Toon’s animated TV show God Squad, as well as 10 documentaries. Their $9 million investment will kick off production worth almost $29 million.

Check out full details on all these projects at Screen Australia.

Discuss: But back to the big news. Do you think Kath and Kim will translate well to the big screen? We’ve already seen them try their hand at a telemovie (and let’s not discuss the U.S. adaptation); do you think they can pull it off?
