With Casa de mi Padre set to hit theaters on March 16, Will Ferrell is currently in New Orleans working on his latest movie, Dog Fight. The first image was released last week (via NOLA Films) so now we can all start getting really excited about it, because LOOK! HE HAS FUNNY HAIR! And there’s Jason Sudeikis! Warm up the message boards, folks, because we have speculating to do.
Ferrell plays a South Carolina politician with presidential ambitions, but he’s locked in a heated rivalry with a fellow statesman played by Zach Galifianakis. I assume there will be hijinks when the two try to derail each other’s campaigns, and I’m guessing a lot of yelling of the shirtless variety. Dog Fight also stars Jason Sudeikis, who is currently playing the role of “The Luckiest Bastard Alive” in Olivia Wilde’s bedroom, as well as Dylan McDermott, Brian Cox, John Lithgow and Dan Aykroyd, who was apparently able to pry himself away from his current Happy Madison obligations.
The film is scheduled for the convenient election season release date of August 10.
And in case you haven’t seen it, here’s the full length trailer for Casa de mi Padre, which looks strangely great.
