Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg Re-Team for Warner's 'Turkey Bowl'
Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg will reunite in Warner Bros. "Turkey Bowl," a comedy about an annual football game.
They last worked together in last year's Columbia Pictures "The Other Guys."
It's a Ferrell comedy: broad, physical comedy and lots of cameos.
Warner has closed a deal with the writers, Scott Silveri and Robert Carlock, based on their pitch.
Carlock knows his comedy: He's executive producer of "30 Rock," he wrote for "Joey" and "Friends," and he's a former staff writer for "Saturday Night Live," where he worked with Ferrell.
I certainly hope that Tribeca Films/ESPN, who bought Kyle's movie tries to get this altered in some way. They should at least throw a bunch of cash Kyle's way (and sign him to a development contract while they're at it).
