Will Ferrell Must Go

Will Ferrell will take a break from the big studio scene when he finishes shooting The Other Guys, by starring in the $10m indie comedy Everything Must Go.

Based on a Raymond Carver short story (Carver's work was also the basis of Robert Altman's Short Cuts and Ray Lawrence's Jindabyne) It's the directorial debut of Dan Rush, whose script was smokin' hot enough to make it onto to the infamous Hollywood Black List of cracking-but-unproduced screenplays.

The story follows Ferrell attempting to sell all of his possessions, after his wife dumps them on the lawn and kicks him out of the house.

Obviously Ferrell is great at the broad stuff, but hopefully this will be one of his more understated and sympathetic roles, a la the brilliant Stranger Than Fiction. Production gets underway next spring.
