It’s the season for Will Ferrell to attach himself to new movies. He’s already added his name to a couple of project in the last few weeks, and now Deadline reports that Tri-Star Pictures has picked up the comedy pitch The Yank, which has Ferrell attached to star.
Steve Pink and Jeff Morris are set to write the script, which is about a timid insurance courier (Will Ferrell) who gets caught up in a plot to steal the Britich Crown Jewels in London.
It’s early days for the film at the moment as it’s only at the pitch stage and no director is currently attached.
The project doesn’t have a director attached at this time.
Unsurprisingly it’s not known when it will shoot.
