Ferrell’s eSports Comedy Gets A Keen Helmer

Ferrells Esports Comedy Gets A Keen Helmer

“Fist Fight” helmer Richie Keen has been tapped to direct an untitled eSports comedy at Legendary Pictures that has Will Ferrell attached to star.

Jordan Dunn and Michael Kvamme penned the film, in which Ferrell plays a member of a professional eSports team, and an anomaly in a sport where players usually retire in their 20s due to slowing hand-eye co-ordination.

Keen will also produce. He has helmed episodes of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “The Goldbergs” and remains attached to direct Michael Keaton in the comic adaptation “Imagine Agents”.
