“The Other Guys” duo Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are set to re-team for the football-themed comedy “Turkey Bowl” at Warner Bros. Pictures reports Deadline.
The pair will play guys from football-obsessed towns who lead rival teams in an annual tackle football game for bragging and trash-talking rights.
The grandiose games will be filled with various cameos, akin to the rival broadcaster gang fights in “Anchorman”. Alec Baldwin has already been cast as Wahlberg’s father.
“30 Rock” scribes Robert Carlock and Scott Silveri penned the script from an idea by Owen Burke. Ferrell, Wahlberg, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy will produce.
