Ferrell, “Neighbors” Scribe Team For Comedy

Will Ferrell is attached to star and “Neighbors” and “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” writer Brendan O’Brien set to pen a currently untitled comedy which Universal Pictures has just snatched up.

The story follows an escaped convict who teams up with an unlikely partner (Ferrell) to stop his girlfriend from getting married.

O’Brien, Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum and Adam McKay will produce. O’Brien recently co-wrote and produced New Line’s “The House” which stars Ferrell and Amy Poehler and opens next June.
