Amy Poehler is in negotiations to star with Will Ferrell in the comedy “The House” at New Line.
“Neighbors” writers Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien penned the script about a married couple who lose their daughter’s college fund. They team up with their neighbors to start an illegal casino in the basement of their suburban house to earn back the cash.
Cohen is directing with Ferrell producing with Adam McKay, Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake. Filming aims to begin in August in Los Angeles.
