Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg will re-team for football comedy Turkey Bowl
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
For those who loved THE OTHER GUYS you’ll be happy to hear that funny man Will Ferrell and serious acting Mark Wahlberg will be re-teaming for the comedy TURKEY BOWL. The film will follow two small town football teams with rival coaches (to be played by our dynamic duo) that square off for a big Thanksgiving Day game. No director is currently attached, but it shouldn’t be too tough to find one of those. Since it’s getting late on in the filming year, look for a Thanksgiving weekend release probably in 2013.
I have a special place in my heart for sports films (it actually resides next to the special place for creature features) and football films tend to be my drug of choice. And I like the idea of Will Ferrell in this film, he is after all working his way through all the sports (KICKING AND SCREAMING, TALLADEGA NIGHTS and SEMI-PRO) and I’m personally eagerly anticipating when he will do a hockey film.
