LOS ANGELES, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- British actress Anna Friel is set to play the female lead in the upcoming big-screen version of the 1970s-era U.S. television show "Land of the Lost."

Best-known for her work on the U.S. television series "Pushing Daisies," Friel will play the love interest of Will Ferrell's disgraced paleontologist in "Land of the Lost," a live-action fantasy flick set in a prehistoric world, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The film is to start shooting next month, the trade paper said.
