Reilly up for so many activities later on.

Sitting down with Collider at a junket for the Spanish-language comedy Casa de Mi Padre, Will Ferrell conveyed that his highest priority right now is Step Brothers 2. Ferrell is about to get cracking with co-writer Adam McKay on a script that he hopes to shoot this fall.

That sounds like a very quick turnaround time, until you realize that the script to the original Step Brothers was probably scribbled on a pizza box with the words “wine mixer” and “boats and hos” underlined and circled several times.

This news means that the public will probably have to wait for Ferrell’s Thanksgiving football comedy Three Mississippi, which creates quite the dilemma. Do we root for Step Brothers 2, a wildly unnecessary (but probably hilarious) sequel, or do we root for Three Mississippi an original film, but not “original” in that Ferrell has done like a thousand sports comedies, and they’re generally his weakest stuff?

It’s conceivable that he could rock Step Brothers 2, then Three Mississippi, but considering the latter would probably require a holiday release, the timing won’t be easy. Maybe he could just make some more Funny or Die videos with that baby.

Will Ferrell’s Spanish Comedy Is A Tangled Web http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/will-ferrells-spanish-comedy-is-a-tangled-web/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/will-ferrells-spanish-comedy-is-a-tangled-web/#comments Mon, 17 Jan 2011 18:07:15 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=17244 Will Ferrell's 'Casa de mi padre' is having an identity issue. On one hand it's lost its title, but on the other it has plot details.

Picture not related.

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)

Cast of Will Ferrell’s ‘Casa De Mi Padre’ is Muy Bueno http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/cast-of-will-ferrells-casa-de-mi-padre-is-muy-bueno/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/cast-of-will-ferrells-casa-de-mi-padre-is-muy-bueno/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Will Ferrell's upcoming film, Casa de mi padre, has unveiled its secret weapon: Mexicans! Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, both natives of Mexico, have joined the cast of the Spanish language film which producers say will be shot in the style of an “overly dramatic telenovela.” Considering Bernal was in Y tu mamá tambié and Luna was in Milk, the odds of the film having a homoerotic scene just went through the roof. Couple that with middle-America's current love of all things Mexican, and you've got yourself a guaranteed hit on your hands. (Collider)

Will Ferrell en Espanol? Si se puede! http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/will-ferrell-en-espanol-si-se-puede/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/will-ferrell-en-espanol-si-se-puede/#comments Wed, 04 Aug 2010 07:56:35 +0000 Defy Media Ay ay ay! Will Ferrell's next movie will be entirely in Spanish....más o menos. Easy there, Pat Buchanan. Don't move to Arizona and join the Minute Men just yet. It's not what it sounds like. One of Will’s Funny or Die friends will direct the movie and from the way it’s being described, maybe we should all be picturing something along the lines of Conan O’Brien’s “Conando” sketches. It sounds like it could be a Spanish-language movie intended for an English speaking audience. As a conosur of Telemundo, I think this film has a lot of potential. I can totally see Ferrell as a huge purple bug, or maybe dressed as an over-sized schoolboy complete with giant props. Throw in some dancing chicks and a hot weather girl, and you've got a cross-cultural blockbuster on your hands. (Cinema Blend)
