Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have had a successful partnership with the likes of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Step Brothers. However it’s been a few years since they properly co-starred together (beyond Reilly’s uncredited cameo in Anchorman 2).
However now they’re planning to reunite for the comedy Border Guards, according to Deadline. It should also bring them back together with Talladega and Step brothers director Adam McKay.
Jesse Armstrong (In the Loop, Four Lions) came up with the script, which is about two friends (Ferrell and Reilly) who decide to become border patrol guards to add some purpose to their lives. Things get turned around when they accidentally get stranded in Mexico without identification and must try to sneak back into America.
It’s not clear yet when the movie might go into production.
