Rumor has it that Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg will be playing partner cops in a movie called "B Team". Ferrells regular collaborator Adam McKay, who directed Anchorman and Step Brothers, will also be directing this movie. There is no word on the plot yet, except the obvious, that Ferrell and Wahlberg play totally mismatched law enforcement partners. Chris Henchy, who wrote the script for Land Of The Lost (2009), which starred Farrell, is also writing this one.
The team of Ferrell and McKay haven't sold the idea to anyone yet, but our guess is that Columbia will take the script and buy the rights to the movie, because they have a huge past with Ferrell and McKay.
Mark Wahlberg is trying to go into comedy movies, since his last stint on Saturday Night Live where he jokingly had a live unannounced part where he got into it with Adam Samberg (who played wahlberg mocking him). Wahlberg was also trying to be comedic on The Jimmy Kimmel Show, and who could forget his last movie which was a huge comedy, The Happening. Ya, that was a good one, am I right?
