We say “re-team” but we are yet to see their first pairing, Anchorman: The Legend Continues, which hits cinemas at the end of the year.

Still, the prospect of two of Hollywood’s funniest actors – and SNL alumni – working together is exciting.

Welcome to Me will be directed by Shira Piven, wife of Anchorman director Adam McKay, and will see Wiig playing “a woman with dissociative personality disorder who wins the lottery and decides to spend her winnings on a cable access talk show about her life.”

The screenplay was written by Eliot Laurence (The Big Gay Sketch Show) and the film will be produced by McKay, Ferrell, and Jessica Elbaum.

Comparisons to the Oscar nominated Silver Linings Playbook are already being drawn but we’ll have to wait and see whether these two big personalities drown each other out or combine to create a hit film.

In the meantime, you can watch Ferrell and Wiig sharing the stage at the Golden Globes.
