Ferrell, Wiig Cancel Lifetime Project

Will Ferrell and Kristin Wiig have reportedly abandoned plans for the Lifetime TV movie “A Deadly Adoption” following news about the secret project becoming public on Wednesday.

That news hit on April Fool’s Day which immediately led to speculation the whole thing was a farce, but the initial reports made it clear this wasn’t a joke.

Lifetime itself then confirmed news reports that the comedians had already taped the dramatic thriller playing a couple who befriend a pregnant woman in hopes of adopting her child.

Late yesterday though, the actors issued a statement saying they were disappointed word got out and have decided to forgo the secret project. Lifetime had planned to air it this Summer, but they haven’t responded yet regarding Ferrell and Wiig’s statements.
