Single White Ferrell

Single White Ferrell

Alicia here,

Will Ferrell has had a big week. Just a couple of hours after the funnyman led an all star band in a tribute to ”Tonight Show” host Conan O’Brien, he became a dad for the third time, to the very rock n roll sounding Axel Ferrell. Now comes news of a leading role in a romantic comedy.

Will’s starring in a remake of French film from 2006, “I Do: How to Get Married and Stay Single”, which starred Charlotte Gainsbourg. No writer is attached yet, and the details of the plot are a little bit sketchy, but apparently the story centres on a 40-something year old bachelor who asks a friend to marry him and ditch him at the altar in an attempt to get his meddling mother and seven sisters off his back.

Sounds very generic and unlikely to be the hit Will Ferrell badly needs. His last few films were a disaster at the box office, especially “Land of the Lost” which only made $49.4m US at the box office, not nearly enough to cover its $100 million budget.

Will’s got a couple of other projects in the pipeline, this year we’ll see him in “The Other Guys” with Mark Wahlberg, and we’ll hear his voice in the animated superhero spoof “Megamind”.

She developed her taste for film at a young age, spending many a heady Friday night pajama-clad at the video store, picking out her 7 films for 7 days for $7. Bargain! While at school she created a Film Club, electing herself President. Eventually the School Principal asked her not to get up in assembly to talk about movies anymore.
