6 DECEMBER 17,1978 SUNDAY TV December 17, 1978 Maxwell Smart goes big screen United Press International Hollywood, Calif. Don Adams will reprise his starring role as the bungling, half-witted spy in "The Return of Maxwell Smart," a feature film sequel to his defunct "Get Smart" television series. The popularity of the series, currently syndicated in the United States and 67 foreign countries, inspired Universal Pictures producer Jennings Lang to convert the character to the big screen. Production is due to begin in January. Lang said "The Return of Maxwell Smart" has a $6-million budget and is being written as a satire on international cloak-and-dagger adventures in the vein of James Bond films.
