Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have been wanting to make another movie together since they collaborated on The Other Guys, and they’ve had their sights set on a movie called 3 Mississippi for some time now. The Hollywood Reporter says that film is one step closer to reality now, because the writer/director team of John Morris and Sean Anders has signed on to rewrite the script. Anders, who directed the underrated comedy Sex Drive, will direct this movie. More after the jump.
The movie, which has also been referred to as Turkey Bowl, follows two feuding families who are bitter rivals in a game of touch football every Thanksgiving. The actors will play the leads of the respective households, and they hope filming will begin in September of this year.
I loved the dynamic between Wahlberg and Ferrell in The Other Guys, and I can’t wait to see them reunite for a project as ridiculous as this one. It sounds like it could be an entire movie taken from that football sequence in Wedding Crashers, and I’m OK with that. Are you interested in seeing these actors star opposite each other again?
