The Wrap reports that the duo's involvement is contingent on Mark Steilen's screenplay, which is yet to be written.
The pitch for Tag Brothers was based on a recent Wall Street Journal article, the rights to which were acquired by New Line Cinema in a recent bidding war.
The article described a long-running game of tag between a group of former classmates from Spokane, Washington, who are now in their 40s.
The 'tag brothers' spend February of every year chasing one another across the country - and going so far as to break into each other's homes and offices - in order to avoid being "it".
Two other male leads are yet to be cast alongside Ferrell and Black.
Steilen previously wrote 1999 John C Reilly comedy The Settlement, and more recently served as second-unit »
Matt Damon and his wife Luciana renewed their wedding vows on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia Saturday, People confirms. The couple exchanged vows at sunset as their 50 guests, including their four daughters and actors Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, as well as Ocean's costars Casey Affleck and Don Cheadle looked on.

'Ain't Got You' – Bruce Springsteen
In 1987, when Bruce Springsteen wrote the song "Ain't Got You", he was the biggest rock star in the world. He had vast estates in New Jersey and Beverly Hills, and he had not long returned from a honeymoon at Gianni Versace's villa in Lake Como. "Ain't Got You" was Springsteen's attempt to make a self-aware nod to his outrageous fortune, the Rembrandts on his walls, and how he had come a long way from his working-class upbringing.
Before he released it, Springsteen played »

Matt Damon is reportedly walking down the aisle again -- but don't fret, it's with the same woman.
The actor, 42, and his wife Luciana Barroso (now Damon) are planning a destination wedding at an unknown location, according to the New York Post. Page Six is reporting that Hollywood's biggest stars were buzzing over Oscars weekend, discussing the "Save the Dates" the Damons recently sent out. (We're sure Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner got their invite).
And the details are top secret -- with only Matt and Luciana knowing where the nuptials will take place.
“They had a really low-key wedding in Manhattan,” a Hollywood source explained to Page Six, adding, “so now they want to do something bigger.”
Matt and Luciana are the proud parents of four children, one being Luciana's teenage daughter Alexia from a previous marriage. But Alexia and her three sisters Isabella, 6, Gia, 4, and Stella, 2, will not »

As if bringing us Stooge-like comedy with Stuck on You and Dumb and Dumber wasn’t enough, The Farrelly Brothers take on the sacred-cow of comedy with a modern-day reinterpretation of the classic slapstick of Larry, Curly and Moe in The Three Stooges…
Abandoned on a nun’s doorstep, Larry, Curly and Moe grow up finger-poking, nyuk-nyuking and woo-woo-wooing their way to uncharted levels of knuckleheaded calamity. But when the orphanage that took them in is at risk of shutting down the brothers make it their miracle mission to save their childhood home. The hapless trio are always landing themselves in trouble and now they are at risk of becoming entangled in an oddball murder plot. »
It has been dubbed the worst film of all time and "the Citizen Kane of awful" by critics. In fact, so unimpressed was director Peter Farrelly with the reaction to his new film Movie 43 that he took to Twitter at the weekend to warn reviewers to "lighten up" and "back off".
"To the critics: Movie 43 is not the end of the world. It's just a $6-million movie where we tried to do something different. Now back off," wrote Farrelly under the Farrelly Bros handle he shares with brother Bobby, with whom he co-wrote hit comedies such as There's Something About Mary and Stuck On You. "To the critics: You always complain that Hollywood never gives you new stuff, and then when you get it, you flip out," he added in a separate 140-character missive. »

After years of serving as the butt of Kimmel’s regular show-closing joke — “Apologies to Matt Damon; we ran out of time” — the Oscar winner got his revenge last night by seizing control of Live. Kimmel spent the entire episode taped to a chair with a tie stuffed in his mouth, watching helplessly as Damon taunted him, replaced his sidekick and his bandleader with Andy Garcia and Sheryl Crow — a definite case of trading up — and enlisted a bevy of other stars to assist in his takeover. »

As the above clip shows, Damon wasn't just on the show to chat. He was there for revenge.
And oh, it was sweet! From Matt Damon's clever hosting skills (if that whole movie career goes kaput, he definitely has a second career in late night) to the all-star testimonials (Oprah! De Niro! Jimmy Kimmel's parents!) to a couch filled with Oscar nominees and winners, everything on the night of "Jimmy Kimmel Sucks!" was perfect.
Just like Matt Damon himself, when you think about it. »
