Ferrell and Wahlberg reunite for Turkey Bowl

The Other GuysWill Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg – are set to reteam for a new comedy in which they play neighbourhood rivals who face off in an annual football game.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros acquired the pitch – tentatively titled Turkey Bowl – from writers Robert Carlock (30 Rock) and Scott Silveri (Friends). The story is credited to Owen Burke (Funny or Die).

Although the project is still in the embryonic stages, Alec Baldwin is already attached to star as Wahlberg’s dad. The pitch also promises plenty of celebrity cameos, and the football games will supposedly echo the “Battle of the Newscasters” from Ferrell’s Anchorman.

Discuss: This is familiar territory for Ferrell. Are you glad to see Wahlberg once again flex his comedy muscle?
