Let’s hope he’s stabbed with a trident.
This just in…
Looks like Brick Tamland is getting a ladyfriend.
And possibly an armless Luke Wilson?
Your walls will really snap.
I’m sure Ferrell will play some sort of unflappable, level-headed dad who never gets pushed to his breaking point.
Let’s pray that Adam McKay will direct.
Will he yell at Mark Wahlberg in a thick Boston accent?
He wants Crowe to play the lead in his hyper-violent superhero movie, ‘The Boys’. Sounds like a stretch.
That movie about the brother and sister from the fairy tales that grow up to be specialty bounty-hunters has a release date! No, THAT one.
She’s been keeping a low profile, but all of that is about to change. Famke Janssen has joined the cast of Tommy Wirkola’s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.
Give it up for the male Mariah Carey, y’all. Huff n’ Doback are about to go beast in the booth.
Bring it on, witches.
Jeremy Renner recently spoke to Norwegian site Dagsavisen in loud, deliberate speech patterns to explain that he might work for breadcrumbs in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. He also stated that original Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Noomi Rapace, may play his sister and fellow witch hunter for director Tommy Wirkola and producers Adam McKay and Will Ferrell.
There's no official press release yet, so don't consider this a lock. It's about time Renner returned to comedy. He showed such promise in National Lampoon's Senior Trip. (Twitch)
Lizzy Caplan is returning to the world of underrated cable comedy. Deadline reports that she's teaming up with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay to develop the dating disaster memoir "I Don't Care About Your Band" into a comedy series for HBO.
Based on the sh*tty dating experiences of comedienne Julie Klausner, "I Don't Care About Your Band" will star Caplan as a young woman who dates man-boys perpetually. Whether they be hacky improv comedians or callow would-be rockstars. What that means is we'll most likely see Caplan wrapped in dinosaur-print bedsheets while asking, "Where is this relationship headed?"
Will Ferrell and Adam McKay unleashed this trailer for The Virginity Hit this past weekend at Comic-Con to a very confused audience. The film, which the dynamic duo are producing, came off as a joke at first. Then it went on just a little too long and we all realized it wasn't a joke, it was a promotion for an actual feature length film.
No disrespect to Team McFerrell, but this premise is an exercise in deceased equine abuse (beating a dead horse, to you laymen). It's a mash-up of 40 Year-Old Virgin, Superbad, and American Pie with the added, quickly becoming overused, faux documentary approach. Maybe that's why everyone at Comic-Con thought it was a parody of those films. Maybe it should have been…
The Virginity Hit hits theaters September 10, 2010

Ever since the news that an Anchorman sequel would not happen, I've been very sad. Food doesn't taste right and I don't notice the birds singing anymore. The news should make no one sadder than director Adam McKay, who seems to have accepted the loss. In fact, he's looking onward and upward. ScreenJunkies caught up with the director of The Other Guys over the weekend and he told us he's interested in bringing back Brennan and Dale for a sequel to the cult comedy Step Brothers. That poses important questions. Where would he take the characters? How have they grown?? And why doesn't he secretly film an Anchorman sequel using the Step Brothers funding? If not for me, do it for Christina Applegate. FIND OUT THE STEP BROTHERS 2 PLOT DETAILS AFTER THE JUMP…
Is the world ready to see John C. Reilly in spandex? The Other Guys director Adam McKay is reported to be in talks to direct an adaptation of the über-violent Garth Ennis comic, The Boys. The comic follows a secret CIA team that monitors and punishes hard partying, out-of-control superheroes.McKay is a strange pick for this dark and gruesome material, so I would expect him to add a comedic element that makes the film more family-friendly. Like Will Ferrell running around naked except for a Superman cape. He can study my neighbor's kid for the role. Seriously, though. Put some pants on that kid. He's six. (EW)
As previously reported, Adam McKay has a serious case of the frownies today. After severely cutting the budget, Anchorman 2 is still a no-go with Paramount. There was a glimmer of hope earlier this week when the original cast agreed to cut their prices, but Paramount decided to pass all the same.I imagine it went something like this:ADAM McKAY: So there you have it, The Further Legends of Ron Burgundy!!PARAMOUNT EXEC: Very funny. But I'll need to consult with my adviser.SLAMS MAGIC 8 BALL DOWN ON DESK.PARMOUNT EXEC: Oooh. It is decidely not so. MWUHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!!!!!MAGIC 8 BALL: MWUHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!A TEAM OF BAYWATCH WRITERS CLOSES DOOR ON McKAY'S FACE.(via /Film)
The trailer for The Other Guys has dropped and it provides a great deal more context than the fancy schmancy motion poster did. Although a part of me is missing the "Ridin' Dirty" background music. Watch out, synopsis comin' atchya! Set in New York City, The Other Guys follows Detective Allen Gamble (Ferrell), a forensic accountant who’s more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets, and Detective Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg), who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since an embarrassing public incident with his quick trigger finger. Allen and Terry idolize the city’s top cops, Danson and Manzetti (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson), but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don’t quite go as planned.
A teaser for The Other Guys hit ShoWest last week and now Yahoo has officially released it to people who aren't allowed back in Vegas, deeming it a "motion poster." Call me old fashioned, but I like a play and pause button on my media. Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell sliding across screen like a couple of bad ass cops is a damn fine thing to witness so enjoy the autoplay and autorepeat. Don't you DARE close that window until it's cycled at least 10 times. Check out the fancy, shmancy motion poster after the jump.
Someone at ShoWest snagged some footage of the new Adam McKay directed comedy The Other Guys starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell. I'm really digging how Marky Mark is the Cash to Ferrell's Tango. Sure, Wahlberg is playing another ramrod cop, but don't fix it if it ain't broke, yaknowwhatI'msayin'? And Ferrell wears glasses in this film, which I haven't seen him sport in awhile. As long as he doesn't do the whole man-child act again, I'll sit in another darkened theater with him. Here's some context for all you brainiacs:
