Ferrell ‘Fiction’ Flick Garners Two More


Just yesterday it was announced that Maggie Gyllenhaal was joining the Marc Forster film Stranger Than Fiction starring Will Ferrell, and today we get two more names joining the cast.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Queen Latifah and Emma Thompson are joining the cast of the film in which Ferrell has been cast as an obsessive/compulsive IRS auditor who begins to hear a voice that turns out to be an author who is writing a novel in which Ferrell is the ill-fated protagonist. The auditor heeds the narrator’s advice and turns his life around.

Thompson will play an author suffering from writer’s block, Latifah as a book-company employee whose job is to unblock writers and Gyllenhaal will play Ferrell’s unlikely love interest, a baker with anarchist leanings.
