Though they didn't have the natural comic rhythms of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, Mark Wahlberg and Ferrell made for a potent combination in 'The Other Guys.' So it's no surprise the two will team up again for '3 Mississippi,' which just landed Sean Anders and John Morris as the writers on the film, with Anders set to direct.

Will Ferrell appeared on the ‘Conan’ show in full Ron Burgundy gear to announce that Paramount had agreed to terms on an ‘Anchorman’ sequel. Precious few details were shared, however, before Burgundy blew into his flute and danced off into the night. When will the sequel reach theaters? And what might it be about? Thankfully, writer/director Adam McKay’s shedding a little more light on the situation.

Will Ferrell Announces 'Anchorman 2' is a Go!

In what may be the greatest news in the history of cinema, Will Ferrell broke on tonight's Conan O'Brien show that he will be reuniting with director Adam McKay, and co-stars Paul Rudd and Steve Carell for what could be the greatest sequel every filmed: 'Anchorman 2.' This has the possibility of making 'The Godfather Part II' look like 'The Godfather Part III.'

New Line Grabs 'Crazy U' for Will Ferrell

by Damon Houx March 26, 2012 @ 5:40 PM
Andrew Ferguson's book 'Crazy U: One Dad’s Crash Course In Getting His Kid Into College' is pretty self-explanatory. A concerned father wants his son to get into the best school, so he tries everything to get some sort of advantage. Sounds like a high-concept comedy, so - as Deadline Hollywood is reporting - it's no surprise that New Line bought it as a possible star Vehicle for Will Ferrell.

Will Ferrell Introduces Conan, and the World, to His Crazy Brother

by Chase Whale March 23, 2012 @ 8:09 AM
Will Ferrell was a guest on Conan last night to talk about his new film, 'Casa de mi Padre'. During his segment, after discussing a weird sex scene in the film, Ferrell talks about his brother, Terry, who lives on the Warner Bros. lot. You see, Terry used to work on the show 'Gilmore Girls' and after the show ended, Terry just didn't want to leave (rumor has it he is the cause of the show ending).

'Casa De Mi Padre' Review

I'm not sure what's more surprising: that 'Casa De Mi Padre' isn't funny or that it isn't really trying to be funny.  The only "joke" here is the film itself -- one long put-on about Will Ferrell pretending to be a Latino heartthrob in a mostly straight-faced and entirely under-funded Mexican melodrama about cattle ranchers fighting drug dealers.  Beyond a few winking nods to Ferrell's country of origin and 'Casa''s intentionally low-fi aesthetic, this is more a playful homage than a blistering satire (think 'Grindhouse,' not 'Anchorman').  Ferrell's presence at the center of it all makes this one of the most admirably strange movies by a major Hollywood star in recent memory, though not an entirely satisfying one.
