In the mid-2000s, Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly became an unexpected but very popular comedy partnership. However we haven’t had a movie from them for a while, but now TheWrap reports that are reuniting once again for Devil’s Night.
The movie is about Leonard and Gabe, two best friends who bonded over the annual Devil’s Night, which on October 30th in the 1970s and 1980s, was an unofficial holiday where young men and women would commit acts of vandalism and arson. Leonard and Gabe’s hijinks eventually lead to their friendship’s abrupt ending. 15 years later, they must reunite to help save their town from massive destruction and chaos.
Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul wrote the screenplay, with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay producing through their Gary Sanchez Productions company. It doesn’t appear a director is attached as yet.
