Will Ferrell and Adam McKay reteam and Swear To God

They get together for a seventh time

Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay can’t get enough of each other – they’ve just signed up to work together for a seventh time on Swear To God.

The duo most famously worked together on 2004 riot-fest Anchorman, and most recently made The Other Guys with Mark Wahlberg.

Swear To God will see Ferrell playing a narcissistic hedge fund manager who believes that he’s seen God.

The script was written by Due Date writers Alan Cohen and Alan Freedland, who will no doubt bring the same oddball humour to Ferrell’s film that they did to that Downey Jr/Galifianakis vehicle.

Ferrell and McKay are also working together on Three Mississippi (the latter as producer), a football comedy that will star Mark Wahlberg and Alec Baldwin.

And as if that wasn’t enough, McKay is also hoping to bring his movie adaptation of comic book The Boys to the big screen, though word on that project has been quiet of late.

Think Ferrell and McKay need to get a room? Or do they make a great team? Talk to us below...

      Anything with Will Ferrell in and powered by Adam McKay has turned to comedy gold. I can't wait!

      I still can't help but feel Ferrell is living off the Anchorman movie, he hasn't produced anything even remotely close to that standard since. Elf, Talladega Nights, Step Brothers, Blades of Glory, all below average. The Other Guys probably came closest but was still some considerable difference off. It seems to reason, he likes to shout thing, or more particularly, shout random things and this is his gimmick in movies. People give that bearded dude(Galifinakis) from the hangover a hard time for being the same "character" in all his movies, in a not so exaggerated manner, Ferrell does the same thing over and over again.

      Step Brothers below average, are you kidding me ? It was vastly superior to The Other Guys.
