It would seem that Warner Bros. is keen to keep Will Ferrell working for the studio for a little longer. The comedy actor is already in line to star in political comedy Southern Rivals for the company, and now Warners has snapped up a pitch called Swear to God from Due Date writers Alan Cohen and Alan Freedland, which just so happens to have a Mr W Ferrell attached to star.

There aren’t many details floating around about the plot just yet, but Deadline reports that the script is a buddy comedy that would see Ferrell as a vain financial type who suddenly believes he’s seen the Almighty.

Though an early version of Deadline’s report had regular Ferrell collaborator Adam McKay attached to direct, that’s since been amended. And that’s not too shocking, since McKay is already busy developing other projects, including the adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic book The Boys. Still, given that Swear to God is still at a fairly embryonic stage (the script isn’t written yet), there’s always a chance he could clamber aboard later on down the line.
