Will Ferrell’s Casa de mi padre (now imbued with the power of Mexicans!) is having an identity issue. The Spanish-language telenovela comedy has had its title reduced to Untitled Spanish Comedy for the moment. Which sounds suspicously like something Setzer and Friedberg would do.
But what’s in a name? In the plus column, they’ve released a pretty funny plot synopsis.
This movie is currently called UNTITLED SPANISH COMEDY and stars Will Ferrell, Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries), DIEGO LUNA (The Terminal) and GENESIS RODRIGUEZ (TV’s Entourage & “Dona Barbara”) Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father’s ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch encounters financial difficulties, Armando’s younger brother Raul (Diego Luna), shows up with his new fiance, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez). It seems that Raul’s success as an international businessman means the ranch’s troubles are over as he pledges to settle all debts his father has incurred. But when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul’s business dealings turn out to be less than legit, all hell breaks loose as they find themselves in a war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal)…
Our apologies to Genesis Rodriguez, who will undoubtedly have Will Ferrell wiggling around on top of her at some point in this film. (Collider)
