Warner Bros. to Reunite Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in TURKEY BOWL

     May 17, 2011


Fans of The Other Guys‘ Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg team-up will be happy to hear that the two have definite plans of joining forces once again. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has acquired a pitch, entitled Turkey Bowl, from 30 Rock writer/producer Robert Carlock and Friends writer/producer Scott Silveri that will reunite the former co-stars. Turkey Bowl will pit Ferrell and Wahlberg as guys from rival towns who engage in an annual football game with the stakes being the ultimate high: you guessed it, bragging rights. Per the report, Warner Bros. is looking to load the rival teams with cameo appearances a la Anchorman‘s broadcaster throwdown.

Adam McKay and Ferrell’s Gary Sanchez banner will produce Turkey Bowl alongside Wahlberg’s Closest to the Hole label. Currently, there is no word on when the project is scheduled to go into production and/or who might occupy the director’s chair. Ferrell can currently be seen in the indie/dramady Everything Must Go. Wahlberg can next be seen alongside Kate Beckinsale and Ben Foster in the thriller Contraband before lensing Seth MacFarlane’s comedy Ted.
