Will Ferrell is one actor who I really respect. I may not like all of his films due to his comedic style, but I respect him for always trying new stuff. He tried translating his talent into the dramatic genre last year with Everything Must Go, and while I haven’t personally seen the film, most complimented the movie for his believable performance.
After taking a small break from the spotlight he’ll be returning with a full-fledged Spanish experimental film titled Casa de mi Padre.
The film also stars Gael Garcia and Bernal & Diego Luna.
Check out the trailer below, thanks to Yahoo Movies and look for Casa de mi Padre in theaters on March 16th, 2012.
Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father’s ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch faces financial strains, Armando’s younger brother Raul (Diego Luna) shows up with his new fiancee, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez) and pledges to settle all his father’s debts. It seems that Raul’s success as an international businessman means the ranch’s troubles are over, but when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul’s business dealings turn out to be less than legit, the Alvarez family finds themselves in a full-out war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal).
