Will Ferrell And Mark Wahlberg's Next Comedy Has Its Team
12 Apr 12
Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg's team-up follow-up to The Other Guys, a football comedy now titled 3 Mississippi, will see a rewrite from Sean Anders and John Morris, with Anders tapped to direct. The duo have been involved with Hot Tub Time Machine, Mr. Popper's Penguins, and the recently mostly confirmed Dumb and Dumber sequel's screenplay. Anders directed Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg's upcoming That's My Boy, as well. Wahlberg has been stocking up on so much work that his "I would've stopped 9/11" moment already feels like a distant memory, while Ferrell has Anchorman 2 on the way. 3 Mississippi should begin production this autumn, "tells of the feud between two families over an annual Thanksgiving touch football game that has existed for 50 years," with Ferrell and Wahlberg playing the opposing coaches.
