Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis seemed to be have a good time making The Campaign, and now they’re planning to work together again as TheWrap reports they are reuniting for Larry’s Kidney, with Richard Linklater directing.
Based on Daniel Asa Rose’s memoir, Ferrell will play Rose (Will Ferrell), who travels to China with his slightly odd cousin (Galifianakis) and his mail-order bride, in the hope that they can get hold of a black market human kidney that will save his life.
It’s not clear when it will shoot, but it appears Hollywood is particularly interested in the story’s Chinese angle. China is the fastest growing movie market in the world, and while numerous blockbusters have tried to include some Chinese interest, it’s less common for a comedy. The studios will be interested to see whether it works.
