It looks like Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell will finally be teaming up for a feature film. They’re both attached to star in an untitled political comedy about rival candidates that has Jay Roach, best known for Meet the Parents and the Austin Powers series, on board to direct. Warner Bros. bought the idea off of a pitch and the script will be penned by Chris Henchy ( The Other Guys) and Shawn Harwell ( Eastbound & Down).
I really can’t think of an actor who’s been hotter than Galifianakis the past couple of years. Ever since The Hangover his career has skyrocketed. It seems like he’s attached to everything these days, which is extremely smart on his part. You have to ride it while you’re hot.
I've got to say it's about time both of these guys shared some screen time. They've both been doing work for Funny or Die, but this is their first real project together. I think their styles blend together nicely, which should lead to some pretty good chemistry throughout the film. We also can’t forget about Ferrell’s run as President Bush on SNL. He absolutely nailed that role which bodes well for his ability to play another politician alongside Galifianakis. I'm pretty sure this one's going to be an absolutely ridiculous political satire. And, on that note, I leave you with this clip. Enjoy.
