Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are teaming up to play cops in B Team.
Ferrell’s regular collaborator Adam McKay, who directed Anchorman and Step Brothers, is planning to settle into the big chair once again.
While there’s no word on the plot – beyond Ferrell and Wahlberg as seemingly mismatched law enforcement types – Chris Henchy, who last co-wrote Land Of The Lost for Ferrell, is writing the script.
And in much the same way as the new Matt Damon project being pitched around town, B Team is being sold as a spec script with the actors and McKay attached as a package.
Who will pluck it from homelessness? No idea yet, but our money’s on Columbia, which has a history with Ferrell and McKay.
Looks like Wahlberg is attempting to keep up the comedy momentum he started by appearing on Saturday Night Live (to jokingly slag off Andy Samberg’s impression of him) and, er, in The Happening.
That was supposed to be funny, right? Right?
Another Ferrell comedy. Does it fill you with dread or delight?
