In an effort to make frat guys care about voting, Jay Roach is hoping to direct Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in a political comedy about two candidates in time for the 2012 presidential election. We don’t really know much more besides the news that the pitch went around town today and there’s said to be significant interest in the project. We’ll keep you posted when Jason Bateman joins as a political advisor.
I’d like to see Ferrell and Zach square off as rivals, but I really don’t know who my vote would go to. Then again, Galifianakis is all for legalizing it. Okay, yeah. I definitely know who I’d vote for. (Deadline)
