Henchman
It must be a nice feeling to have your phone ring and hear Will Ferrell and Adam McKay on the other end, and it's a feeling familiar to former Pixar animator Adam Wood. The duo, via their Gary Sanchez Productions shingle, have snapped up the feature film rights to his short "Henchmen: Ill Suited," and now you can see what got the comedy pair so excited in the first place.

Will Ferrell Russ Meyer Roger Ebert
Hollywood has been trying to bring the saga of Russ Meyer on the big screen, and why not? The filmmaker had an outsized life, and loved uh, outsized women, and put his own, weird mark on cinematic history. Way back in 2011, David O. Russell was planning a Russ Meyer biopic, written by “Lovelace” screenwriter Merritt Johnson, but that seems to have disappeared. However, last fall a new project popped up titled, "Russ & Roger Go Beyond," and it will detail one of most curious chapters in the lives of both Russ Meyer and legendary film critic Roger Ebert, with a big star eyeballing one of the lead roles.

Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy
Ten years ago today, Will Ferrell presented the world with what is still one of his greatest creations, "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy." As you already know from still quoting the movie a decade later, it became a cult hit, and spawned a sequel that was not as good (have you ever quoted anything from "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues"?). But the original remains untouchable, and so it's time to blow out the birthday candles.

The Other Guys
Last year, you might remember that Will Ferrell and Vince Vaughn were kicking around "Daddy's Home" as a potential reunion vehicle, and while seeing them again together on the big screen in leading roles would've been nice. But this new plan is one we can roll with.

On paper, teaming up Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis seems like a no-brainer that would result in awesome hilarity. In practice, we got the thoroughly underwhelming "The Campaign," a low point for both comic actors, but they're going to give it another go on something that sounds a lot more promising.

In fact, this morning sees news of two such stars bringing movies to life simply by virute of their name, though they’ll be dealing in opposite ends of the tonal spectrum.
