Fright Night director Craig Gillespie is in negotiations to direct Flamingo Thief for Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Films. The movie already has Will Ferrell attached to star in what could be an interestingly quirky film.
Ferrell will play the title character, a distraught lawyer who becomes obsessed with stealing pink flamingos from his neighbuors, after his wife leaves him for another man.
Michael LeSieur (You, Me and Dupree) wrote the screenplay, which landed on the 2011 Black List. The script is adapted from Susan Trott’s novel of the same name.
It isn’t known when the movie might shoot. (Source: Variety)
