After appearing together in the hilarious comedies Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Step Brothers, comedy duo Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly will be back together again. According to The Wrap, Ferrell and Reilly are attached to star in the Sony comedy Devil’s Night. The script, written by Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul (Yes Man), centers on October 30th, the night before Halloween that is referred to as Devil’s Night.
Ferrell and Reilly star as Leonard and Gabe, childhood best friends who once enjoyed Devil’s Night, until it ended up tearing their friendship apart. Fifteen years later, the two must put aside their differences in order to save the neighborhood from complete destruction as the night of debauchery has gotten dangerously out of control.
A director hasn’t been attached yet but I’m sure one will be found soon. Ferrell’s Gary Sanchez Productions banner will produce. Are you excited for this?
