Will Ferrell joins Netflix for a comedy movie based around the Eurovision Song Contest

Will Ferrell is set to become the latest A-list comedy actor to lead a Netflix feature film, having signed on to star in Eurovision for the streaming service.

Ferrell will also write the movie, based around the Eurovision Song Contest, with fellow Saturday Night Live alum Andrew Steele. His regular collaborator Adam McKay is on board as an executive producer.

Deadline broke the news of the movie, which they speculate might be a deliberate attempt to appeal to an audience outside of the USA. It is obviously those in Europe who will be more familiar with the eponymous competition.

Ferrell’s move to Netflix puts him into the same area as the likes of Adam Sandler and Chris Rock, who have found the streaming service to be a lucrative home for their work.

R-rated comedies in Hollywood have struggled for box office dollars in recent years, so it’s understandable

HBO’s Succession Trailer: Brian Cox Leads A Troubled Media Empire

HBO has released a full trailer and premiere date for the upcoming news media drama Succession. The series premiere is directed by The Big Short director and co-writer Adam McKay, as he continues to shift away from absurdist comedies starring Will Ferrell, like Talladega Nights, Step Brothers, and The Other Guys, to focus his attention on stories reflective of hot-button topics, political and otherwise. That change in direction earned him a Best Adapted Screenplay Academy Award (which he shares with Charles Randolph), and now sees McKay venturing into television for the story of a wealthy media family that has more than its fair share of real-life parallels.

Quentin Tarantino and Tom Hardy Excite at CinemaCon, But Sony’s 2018 Slate Feels Oddly Familiar

Sony would like you to know it’s committed to originality. That was the message reiterated by its executives at the studio’s CinemaCon presentation Monday night — and no one was more passionate than chairman Tom Rothman, who spoke of the studio’s “increasing dedication” and “commitment” to the concept.

However, Rothman presided over a show-and-tell that included Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly doing their “Step Brothers” schtick in “Holmes and Watson” as Sherlock Holmes and Mr. Watson (tagline: “The World’s Greatest Dicks”); “Hotel Transylvania 3,” Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween,” “Equalizer 2,” “Sicario 2,” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” Marvel’s “Venom,” remakes of “Superfly” and “Miss Bala,” “The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” and teasing mentions of 2019 titles “Men in Black 3,” the still-untitled “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel, and “Jumanji 2.”

Many of these films looked appealing; the CinemaCon audience at the Caesar’s Palace Colosseum particularly responded to “Venom,” with Tom Hardy

Will Ferrell Hospitalized Following Car Crash, Is in Good Spirits
Comedian and actor Will Ferrell was taken to the hospital last night after the SUV he was riding in was side-swiped by another car. The SUV was completely flipped on its roof, with the crash happening on the I-5 freeway at around 11 Pm last night. The actor was one of three people in the SUV, which was being driven by a chauffeur, with the actor returning from a Funny Or Die event in San Diego, where he appeared as his Anchorman character, Ron Burgundy.

The actor didn't suffer any serious injuries, as a video taken from the scene, which you can see below, shows the actor in good spirits, talking on his cell phone while laying on a gurney and being lifted into an ambulance. Sources revealed this morning that Will Ferrell was released from the hospital and that he's doing well, having not suffered any serious injuries. However, witnesses

Netflix Picks Up Liz Feldman Dark Comedy Series Dead to Me

Comedic giants Will Ferrell and Adam McKay just landed a new deal with Netflix, but they won’t be collaborating on a script this time around. Their new dark comedy will be written by an Emmy Award-winning female comedian.

While many know Ferrell for his sketch comedy work on Saturday Night Live, along with comedic roles in films like Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Step Brothers, and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (to name a few), McKay is still relatively unknown, at least as a recognizable pop culture figure.

Saturday Night Live recapped a busy week at the White House as Weekend Update tackled Donald Trump's potential North Korea summit, the latest Stormy Daniels developments and Gary Cohn's resignation.

"In a stunning turn of events, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has agreed to meet in May with Donald Trump or whoever's president in May," co-anchor Colin Jost said. "Trump would be the first sitting president to meet with the leader of North Korea, and it's also going to be the first time both translators begin each sentence with 'Okay,

Indie Spotlight: Two ‘City Boyz’ Make Their Debut In The Big Apple

Project Name: City Boyz

Asking For: $8,000 through Indiegogo

Amount Raised Thus Far (At Time Of Post): $3,082

Days Remaining In Campaign (At Time Of Post): 21

Description: If you're sick of web series about people who live in New York, don't take City Boyz's title too seriously -- it's a misnomer. Chad Burris and Cory Stonebrook's show is actually about two brothers from Florida who head to the Big Apple as tourists after winning a free trip from a radio sweepstakes.

Burris and Stonebrook will portray the two titular boyz, a pair of adult man-children who still live with their parents. When they are set loose in the big city, hijinks will naturally ensue. The first comparison that comes to mind for me is Step Brothers, which Burris and Stonebrook invoked in their pitch video; they also mentioned Broad City and Napoleon Dynamite as influences.

‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’ First Trailer: Because John C. Reilly Deserves A Movie Franchise Of His Own

‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’ First Trailer: Because John C. Reilly Deserves A Movie Franchise Of His Own
If Will Ferrell refuses to make the “Step Brothers” sequel, then we’re just going to have to put our faith in Walt Disney Studios Animation to give John C. Reilly a movie franchise of his own. The company brings Reilly and co-star Sarah Silverman back to the big screen this fall in “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2,” the sequel to the 2012 animated hit that earned an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature.

“Wreck-It Ralph 2” sends Reilly’s bad-guy-turned-good outside of his video arcade game and into the uncharted world of the internet, which includes social media and apps. Ralph is joined by Silverman’s Vanellope von Schweetz as the two set out a mission to find a replacement part that could save Vanellope’s video game from ending. Jane Lynch and Jack McBrayer reprise their voice roles from the original, while Taraji P. Henson and James Corden join the cast.

Sundance Review: ‘Private Life’ Finds Hardship, Honesty, and Humor in Infertility

Over a decade since her remarkably observed and authentically acted The Savages, writer-director Tamara Jenkins makes her long-awaited return to Sundance and feature filmmaking with Private Life, a generous, graceful, full-hearted drama about the complexities of desiring a child when your physiology denies you at every turn. Lest one thinks this is a somber look at such an intimate journey, Jenkins imbues an immense amount of humor and relatability without ever hitting a false note.

Split into chapter of The Retrieval, The Transfer, The Home Study, and The Test–titles which eventually fall away as the process becomes messier–we meet Rachel (Kathryn Hahn) and Richard (Paul Giamatti) years after they’ve already been trying to have children. In their forties and living on a noisy street in Manhattan’s Alphabet City, they still hold passion for their more fruitful past lives in the arts, but to make ends meet

What Happened to Boogie Nights Most Famous Prop?

What Happened to Boogie Nights Most Famous Prop?
Elijah Wood was able to keep the One Ring after Lord of the Rings wrapped and now Paul Thomas Anderson says that Mark Wahlberg was able to keep his prosthetic from Boogie Nights. The director recently conducted a Twitter Ama to promote Phantom Thread, but he also delved deep into many other subjects as AMAs tend to do. In addition to talking about Boogie Nights, Anderson also revealed that he would one day like to direct a children's movie and said that Teen Titans would be his first choice for a superhero adventure, which sounds pretty awesome, so DC, get in touch with Paul Thomas Anderson's people.

Paul Thomas Anderson has frequently said that Mark Wahlberg's Dirk Diggler character's giant penis was much like Jaws, in the way that the wait to see it made it even more powerful. Say all you want, but the scene is iconic and apparently

17 Netflix Original Movies Coming in 2018

Netflix announced late last year that they have no less than 80 new projects in the pipeline for release this year, and a huge amount of those will be original movies. It's hard enough keeping up with everything at the multiplex, but now it's getting even harder to discover which, of the many movies, we need to watch on Netflix streaming. Don't worry. We have you covered.

Love Netflix? Hate Netflix? You can't argue that they are an entertainment juggernaut. It would be enough if they were simply the company who made streaming viable. However, what they have become as a production/distribution powerhouse just about thwarts all of that. Making this even more impressive is the litany of content that Netflix continues to produce. Whether it is the animal conscious Okja, or the Training Day meets Alienation mash-up Bright, or the litany of documentary or TV shows (Orange Is the New Black,

‘Stan and Ollie’: John C. Reilly is Unrecognizable in Laurel and Hardy Biopic
Gary Oldman may have earned a Golden Globe for his amazing transformation into Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour,” but Oldman will soon have a rival in John C. Reilly for his portrayal of Oliver Hardy. Reilly and Steve Coogan bear an uncanny resemblance to Laurel and Hardy on the set of “Stan and Ollie,” a forthcoming biopic about the world’s most famous comedy duo. In a new photo released on Twitter by consultants for the film, Reilly is rotund and adorable in suspenders and a 1950s-style short vintage tie.

Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon’s ‘Terrible’ and ‘Inane’ Rose Parade Parody Really Pissed Off Some Amazon Viewers

Amazon Prime Video got into the live-streaming business on New Year’s Day with live coverage of the 2018 Rose Parade, albeit with a very intentional twist that proved either confounding or downright idiotic to most viewers. The live coverage was actually a parody of live coverage starring Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon in character as health and fitness expert Cord Hosenbeck and “L.A. Law” alum Tish Cattigan, respectively. The comedians stayed in character the entire broadcast and provided ridiculous commentary, and it appears a majority of Amazon users were not happy.

The comments section for “The 2018 Rose Parade Hosted by Cord & Tish” is currently flooded with one-star reviews for the broadcast, with many people seemingly unaware they were watching a parody and not actual coverage of the 2018 Rose Parade. While Shannon looked more like herself,

Comedian and Veteran Rob Riggle to Host Golf Tournament Benefitting Wounded Service Members
Rob Riggle is hosting an event to celebrate the two things he really loves — veterans and golf — and no, it’s not the Catalina Wine Mixer.

Listen to the 'Joyful and Mournful, Romantic and Heartbroken' Title Track to 'Lady Bird' (Exclusive)

Listen to the 'Joyful and Mournful, Romantic and Heartbroken' Title Track to 'Lady Bird' (Exclusive)
Nearly everything about Greta Gerwig's directorial debut, Lady Bird, is perfect, from the script (which she also wrote) to the casting (including Saoirse Ronan as the titular Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson and Laurie Metcalf as her lovingly exasperated mother) to the costumes, cinematography and music.

While Gerwig makes excellent use of Dave Matthews Band in the film, she also enlisted composer Jon Brion (responsible for such varied work as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Step Brothers) to craft the score, which she calls "joyful and mournful, romantic and heartbroken." Below, listen to the Lady Bird—Original Motion Picture Soundtrack:

"In Jon I found a musical soulmate," Gerwig writes in the album's liner notes. "His work is emotional and witty and old-fashioned and forward thinking all at once…I am so grateful for him and the music he made, and it is what allowed Lady Bird to soar."

‘Daddy’s Home 2’ Review: Mel Gibson Proves to Be One Daddy Too Many in Queasy Holiday Comedy
Daddy’s Home 2” isn’t sorry. It doesn’t care about your stupid feelings. Don’t remember what happened at the end of the last movie, or which home belongs to which daddy? Too bad. Don’t want your festive family comedies to star Mel Gibson as a serial womanizer with a flair for violence? Well, “The Man Who Invented Christmas” isn’t out until next week, so you’re shit out of luck. Don’t understand how Will Ferrell could re-team with Mark Wahlberg when a sequel to “Step Brothers” is possibly the only thing that could pull civilization back from the brink? Get in line.

A follow-up to one of Sofia Coppola’s favorite movies of all time, “Daddy’s Home 2” literally ends with its characters snowbound in a multiplex and forced to watch some limp Hollywood garbage because they don’t have anything better to do. In a better world,
