Warner Bros. Plans Turkey Bowl

ON

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, who both appeared opposite one another in last year’s The Other Guys, have signed on for a Warner Bros. comedy called Turkey Bowl, Variety reports.

The pair will appear as rival football coaches of small-town teams whose big showdown is a Thanksgiving Day game.

Robert Carlock and Scott Silveri, who both worked together on “Friends” and “Joey,” will provide the screenplay.

Though no production schedule is currently announced, it’s likely that Turkey Bowl will target a Thanksgiving release, either in (if things move fast enough) 2012 or 2013.
