Sean Anders and John Morris (“Hot Tub Time Machine,” “She’s Out of My League”) are in negotiations to re-write the script for the Will Ferrell-Mark Wahlberg football comedy “3 Mississippi” at Warner Bros. Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
Previously known as “Turkey Bowl”, the story follows a feud between two families over an annual Thanksgiving touch football game that has existed for fifty years. Ferrell and Wahlberg are attached to play the heads of the opposing households.
Anders, who helmed “Sex Drive” and the upcoming “That’s My Boy”, is also in talks to direct. Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy are producing and shooting aims to kick off in September.
