Will Ferrell CASA DE MI PADRE slice

Earlier today we posted 14 clips that gave us a look at Will Ferrell’s foreign language comedy, Casa de mi Padre. When I first heard about the project being done completely in Spanish, I thought to myself, “How the hell are they going to do that?” Well, my questions have been answered by this new 15-minute “making of” featurette. Yes, you read that right: 15 minutes! Normally these things are two or three minutes, but perhaps this is the new norm (considering this making of The Raid: Redemption we recently posted). If the full movie is as funny as this featurette, then it’s destined to be another big hit for Ferrell. Casa de mi Padre, which opens March 16th, also stars Genesis Rodriguez, Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna and Nick Offerman, who all shine in the featurette. Hit the jump to check out the video, which features wolves, horses and bandanas (or lobos, caballos y bandanas).

The hilarious featurette can be viewed below. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the plot of Casa de mi Padre, here is the full synopsis:

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 fiancée, 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).
