Will Ferrell and Adam McKay have history of…doing most anything they please. After the success of website Funny or Die and a dozen or so film successes between the director/producer and actor/producer they’ve got their own production house, and they’re not afraid to use it.

In this instance, the duo are going after Manimal. If you haven’t heard of Manimal, that’s ok. It would be weird if you had. Manimal was a TV show aired in 1983 for 8 episodes about a doctor who fought crime and could turn into animals. That’s it.

And now Will Ferrell and Adam McKay wanna turn it into a film. Right now, they’re only attached to produce the film, but, as with every project from these two, there’s always hope that they’ll step in as actor and director. I mean, GIVE MANIMAL THE RESPECT IT EARNED!

It was announced last week that Anchorman director Adam McKay was on the shortlist to direct Ant-Man in the wake of Edgar Wright‘s leaving the project. Now that list is even shorter as McKay removed himself from the negotiations after moving pretty far along in talks with Marvel. Citing that he’s too busy at the moment to film scenes of Paul Rudd swimming in a toilet, although he’d love to get to that should there ever be an Anchorman 3.

The shortlist also included We’re the Millers director Rawson Marshall Thurber and the just terrible Ruben Fleischer. It’s unknown if they’re still in the mix now that Marvel revealed their favorite was McKay. We will keep you posted when this important film is eventually reassigned. (THR)

I found Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues to be 20% really enjoyable and 80% failed attempts at impersonating the first film with a third act that dragged the entire thing down. But that’s the beauty of shooting with lots of on-set improvisation. Because now, for one week only, Paramount is releasing a special super-sized R-rated version with 763 new jokes. If my calculations are correct, at least 152 of those new jokes have to be funny. Then again, I was an art major so….

Whatever. I’m holding out hope that this is the Anchorman 2 I actually wanted to see. Here’s hoping they recast Ron Burgundy‘s in this version.

When Adam McKay shot Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy there was enough unused footage left over to craft the bonus film Wake Up, Ron Burgundy. That’s why it should come as no surprise that he’s hard at work on another alternate film using extra footage from Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

“We did so much improv on this one that we can literally replace every single joke in the movie and put in alt scenes and alt improv runs,” McKay explained. “I think the editor’s working on it right now, with 250 new jokes.” Whether that film will also be released to theaters or end up as a DVD bonus is unforeseen. But McKay has an idea of where he’d like to see it, “I think it would be really funny to put it in theaters for midnight showings. I know that I personally, if I loved a movie and someone told me that, like if Airplane! had been released with all-new jokes, I’d be like, ‘you’ve got to be fucking kidding me!’ I’d see it in a second.”

No title or plot details about this alternate version have been given so let’s just speculate that it’s Ron Burgundy vs. The Martians. Because, y’know, who wouldn’t want to see Ron Burgundy go toe-to-toe with some Martians? (Empire)

This newest trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues slices off a big piece of plot detail. As Father Time rolls the clock from 1979 to 1980, Ron Burgundy must also roll with the changes as he fails upward into the world of cable news. However if you’re looking for more details about how the News Team ends up getting attacked by airborne scorpions or the situation that causes Ron to force feed a gallon of milk to a shark, you’ll have to see the film when it opens on Christmas Day.

Speaking of Christmas, I know what I want. That RV with a painting of Ron and Jesus on the side. If the RV is not available, I’ll settle for a t-shirt with that pairing. But it had better be a really comfortable t-shirt because I don’t intend to ever take it off.

The witticisms of Ron Burgundy are now available to read in mediums other than t-shirt on college dude. Before Anchorman: The Legend Continues hits theaters, Ron Burgundy’s tell-all memoir “Let Me Off At The Top!,” will be available in a place known as a book store. Available one month before the film’s Christmas release, the book will cover Ron’s childhood and rise in field of broadcast news as well as “well-learned lessons on a variety of topics as well as anecdotes from his pursuits of career, friendship, and women.”

Finally a book more important than the Bible, which is a pretty good read in its own right. Right, Ron?

With every member of the comedy community already popping up in an Anchorman 2 cameo, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay have had to start looking outside the box. And what’s further outside the box than casting the worst person in the world? Thus, there are reports that Kanye West has been spotted on the Atlanta set.

An eyewitness has reported to Hollywood.com that West was filming a scene on a rooftop with Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate. Honestly, that could have been anyone and this should only be considered a rumor. Says the witness, “he required an umbrella for shade most of the time he was on the roof.” Yeah, okay. So I guess Kanye is in this movie now.

Last time Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell teamed up in Bewitched, it kinda sorta killed her career a little bit. So she must be tickled pink at the news they’ll be reunited.

THR reports that she will play a “surprise, uncredited” role in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Way to ruin the surprise, THR. You’ve robbed audiences of the joy that comes with saying, “Oh hey. Isn’t that Nicole Kidman? Yep. Yep. Definitely Nicole Kidman. I recognize her from one of the bad Batman movies.”

The teaser for Anchorman 2 promises two things — the original cast are returning, and things are going to get schtanky. Since this is a Judd Apatow-produced film, we should probably anticipate a large number of comedy cameos.

Backing up that assumption comes news that Kristen Wiig is being eyed to play a love interest — for mentally-disabled weatherman Brick Tamland. The deal hasn’t been finalized yet, but Wiig would crush in that role. Although we’re horrified to see what Wiig will bring to the table. How does one top this:

Wes Mantooth, son of well-known saint, Dorothy Mantooth, was an important figure in the plot of Anchorman. Once an adversary, but now a respected ally, Vince Vaughn’s Channel 9 newsman is a fan favorite. Will we see him in the next chapter in the Anchorman saga?

Yeah, probably.

While doing press in the UK, Vaughn spoke to his involvement in the sequel and offered up some dream casting for the role of his mom, who really is such a saint.

“The chances are better than not that Wes Mantooth will be there,” he said.

And what of his Moms?

 ”I don’t know if anyone can fill that role, she’s such a saint. Angela Lansbury as Dorothy?”

Mmmmm… Lansbury’s okay and all, but there’s only one actress for Dorothy in my heart. And that would be Gert. She’s got saint written all over her.

Anyhow, while we patiently wait with our hands folded for the Anchorman 2 teaser trailer to power-slide its way online, we’ll have to make due with this teaser poster. As you can see, the Channel 4 news team has reassembled. Or at least their lower halves have. Actually, it looks like two of the guys only have one leg each now. So I can safely say that 37.5% of the Channel 4 news team has reassembled. Even so, I’m impressed. Those are nice wrinkle-free pants. Which is more than I can say for you, Daniel Craig.

“I wish I knew how to quit you.”

- Will Ferrell to wacky sports movies

Ferrell held out against that tempting mistress of broad sports comedy for as long as he could, only to find himself back at its doorstep, like a junkie having just slammed his last ration of methadone. And this time, he will lure his The Other Guys co-star Mark Wahlberg into the project as well. Ferrell will be reteaming with director and cohort Adam McKay for Three Mississippi (formerly Turkey Bowl), the story of a neighborly football game that has gotten increasingly contentious everyman. Which means Ferrell will need to go to storage and dust off the “befuddled everyman prone to violent outbursts” temperament, a la Kicking and Screaming. This news comes off news of Ferrell’s teaming with McKay in the buddy comedy Swear To God.

The project does have some promising players with Adam McKay ultimately deciding to helm after working with Ferrell in The Other Guys, and a script from 30 Rock‘s Robert Carlock and Friends producer Scott Silveri. You’ll remember that Friends had a fairly iconic episode with this exact premise in which the gang played the lamest game of touch football ever against each other.

The project should hit theaters by next Thanksgiving, giving Ferrell about seven months to work on his frustrated “DAMMIT!”s before filming begins. (Vulture)

Will Ferrell is being called upon because of his talent for screaming at the Heavens. Warner Bros has bought the pitch Swear To God with the intention of attaching Ferrell and his main man Adam McKay. Written by Due Date scribes Alan Cohen and Alan Freedland, Swear To God stars Ferrell as a hedge fund manager who believes he saw God.

It’s also described as a buddy comedy though there are not details available about who Ferrell will be in a confined space with. Aziz Ansari? Yeah, sure. That sounds good. (Deadline)

The post Alec Baldwin To Toss The Old Pigskin Around appeared first on Screen Junkies.

UPDATE Buried in the bowels of article this comes from is the additional information that the movie isn’t called Turkey Bowl anymore, because that’s bee taken by some other movie. So the working title is Three Mississippi instead. Go long!

When I first heard the news that Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg were reuniting from The Other Guys to play opposing amateur football coaches in Turkey Bowl, I was mildly excited. Now my mild excitement continues, with the news that Wahlberg’s The Departed compatriot Alec Baldwin has signed on to play Wahlberg’s father.

This goes along with the idea that maybe-director (he’s not attached of yet, but he’s “reserve[d] that right”) Adam McKay wants Turkey Bowl stuffed with celebrity cameos. He also is reportedly trying to get Jeremy Renner and Rob Riggle, with presumably many others as well. Here’s an incredibly long and in-depth plot synopsis, straight from McKay’s mouth:

“”It’s about these two rival families from — we’re thinking Philadelphia but we need to check in with Wahlberg and Ferrell and see what kind of accents they want to do. Alec Baldwin is the patriarch of one of the families, and Wahlberg is his son. He saw the Kennedys playing football on their front lawn at Thanksgiving, and boom, that’s it: “Anything the Kennedys do, we’re doing.” His family starts playing the other family that lives across the park from them. Over the years, Baldwin’s family hasn’t done too well — they own a crappy little bar in town — while the other family, which Will’s character eventually becomes the patriarch of, becomes really successful. The game gets nastier and nastier as the years go on, and Ferrell’s family starts just destroying the other family. After a massive heart attack, Baldwin’s character’s dying wish is that his estranged son, Mark, take over the game and finally win one. So Wahlberg has to put this ramshackle, convict, gambling-addict family back together again and beat the richies. The whole spirit of it is that it’s just a giant, fun ensemble comedy. We want to populate it with people we love. There’s a funny subplot with Rob Riggle where he’s a gay cousin that Wahlberg’s family sort of turned their backs on but he played football at Fresno State and they need him. We’re going to try to get Jeremy Renner to play an ex-con. The idea is to bring in, like, 15 people that we love in and just do a big, funny holiday movie.”

Well jeez, Mr. McKay, do we even have to see the movie now? Better be some good cameos, that’s all I’m saying. (Entertainment Weekly)

I’d love to have been a fly on the wall when Adam McKay told Russell Crowe that he wanted to cast him as a hyper-violent, angry guy. I really hope that Funny Or Die was around with a hidden camera to capture the ensuing carnage.

Despite the risk of being beaten about the head and neck, McKay has approached Crowe to play the lead role of Billy Butcher in The Boys. Based on the Garth Ennis graphic novel series, the story follows a secret CIA team that monitors and punishes hard partying, out-of-control superheroes. Crowe does seem interested but wants to wait until the first draft of the script is handed in. Then he’ll be ready to give notes on how to properly shatter someone’s face by hitting them with nothing more than their own forehead. (MTV)

The pedigree for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is there. Jeremy Renner as Hansel and Gema Arteton as Gretel. Will Ferrell, Chris Henchy, Adam McKay, and Kevin. J. Messick producing. Paramount’s putting the film out w/Spyglass Entertainment. And now it’s got a release date next March! How’s the premise, you ask? Well:

“15 years after their narrow fairy tale escape from the gingerbread house, become specialized bounty-hunters looking to take down the witches that almost killed them.”

Well, that sounds like… something. It seems like it’s a decent pitch that will be made or broken by the execution. If it’s a gritty, dark affair with glints of humor, it could probably work nicely, as Renner is pretty compelling when he’s blowing things up (The Hurt Locker). If it’s a silly, goofy retelling with fart jokes and CGI monsters, it’s probably going to be less thrilling. The $60 million film will be shot in 3D, and it opens March 2, 2012. (Deadline)

Give it up for the male Mariah Carey, y’all. Huff n’ Doback are about to go beast in the booth. Yesterday, Adam McKay tweeted: “Are we currently working on a Step Bros rap album? Yup.” Then I guess he realized how that could be taken as a joke and followed it up with, “I wasn’t kidding about Step Bros rap album. And we just found out we have a crazy big time producer. Mos Def, you up for a guest flow?”

Normally I would groan at something like this, but I’m ready for more ‘Boats ‘n Hoes.’ It really is better than anything Drake has put out there. And who knows? If this does well, maybe we’ll get a sequel to ‘City Of Crime.’ (via The Playlist)

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)

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?"

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 STE BROTHERS 2 PLOT DETAILS AFTER THE JUMP…

McKay: “We’re kicking around the idea of Step Brothers 2. We feel like there’s way more fat to be mined there. While it isn’t quite the legend that Anchorman is, it has built kind of a nice following. We think it could be a pretty fun one.”
 
SJ: What would the plot of the sequel be?

“A different kind of immature. The idea is that when we meet them, they’ve gotten more mature. They actually have jobs. They actually do have a semblance of a life. One of them’s married and has a kid. They’re still kind of goofballs but they’v taken three or four steps. Then we have an idea for something happens that knocks him back to square one, and one of the brothers, John C. Reilly sort of instigates it, like ‘we can’t take this anymore.’ And things go really bad, they’re lives kind of fall apart. They have to pull it back together is sort of the basic structure. I won’t say the ideas but we have a couple ideas. We had ideas in the first one that we never did that we always thought were pretty funny.”
 
SJ: If you couldn’t get Anchorman 2 greenlit, how will you be able to do so with a less popular film?

McKay: “I think any sequel you’re up against it. I think the legendary comedy is worse to do a sequel to. We kind of knew going into it that it would never be as good as the first one. You just have to accept it and move ahead. I mean, Godfather II I think is the only one maybe better than the first, right? Empire better than Star Wars, I don’t know about that. Terminator 2 is interesting. It’s still tough though, that original idea out of the gate. Godfather II changed it up enough, that was the trick that it became a different world.”

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)

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.

Even though I wasn’t a huge fan of Step Brothers, it looks like director Adam McKay could have a hit on his hands with this one, as long as Ferrell keeps the manchildness to a minimum. I’m not sure if The Other Guys can top the satirical brilliance of Hot Fuzz, but the bad cop/bad cop scene in the trailer had me LOLing. And if you know me, you know I don’t LOL at just anything. Only fits of rage and kittens in casts

Check out the trailer below. The Other Guys crashes into theaters August 6, 2010.

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.
