Will Ferrell is attached to star in Two Face, a Vince Gilligan-scripted drama-comedy for Sony Pictures Entertainment, says Variety. Mark Johnson and Jimmy Miller are producing.
Ferrell will play the title character, a racist who, after a prank gone awry, develops a split personality.
Ferrell has been intrigued by the script for three years, but the project has gained momentum over the past year. Johnson and Gilligan previously worked together on Home Fries, and Gilligan’s more recent credit is the Sony hit Hancock.
Johnson and Miller are looking for a director, with an eye toward making the film early next year.
