Ferrell and Galifianakis to Face Each Other in Political Comedy


Jay Roach will direct Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in an untitled political comedy at Warner Bros. Pictures.

The Hollywood Reporter says the project “focuses on rival candidates and the studio is hoping to time it to the 2012 presidential elections.”

Chris Henchy (The Other Guys) and Shawn Harwell (HBO’s “Eastbound & Down”) wrote the script.

Ferrell is producing with his Gary Sanchez Productions partner Adam McKay, Roach via his Everyman Pictures, and Galifianakis is producing as well.
