Ferrell and screenwriter/director Adam McKay launched the site in 2006, and stars including Charlie Sheen, Sandra Bullock, Lindsay Lohan and Daniel Radcliffe have all filmed spoof videos for the site.
And McKay has now revealed the internet project could explode into cinemas in a movie similar to the Jackass franchise.
He tells Britain's Total Film magazine, "Absolutely (a film), that has been discussed. Paramount released Jackass and we sort of talked about the idea of doing a similar type of movie for Funny or Die. So fingers crossed."
McKay also admits he and Ferrell have snubbed ideas to make a TV series based on the website, adding, "In no way was it a natural progression. You're devolving. Online is so freeform, and all these standards kick in when you go back to television."
The She's Out of My League star landed the role of Francine in the action comedy, but Sloane admits she had already decided to take on the job as soon as she learned Ferrell and his Step Brothers director pal Adam McKay were behind the film.
She tells WENN.com, "I saw him (Ferrell) and I saw Mark Wahlberg (on the script)... and so the two of them together, and Adam McKay - I love Step Brothers, I've loved every movie they made, so that was like, 'Done! All I wanna do is be in this movie.'"
But Sloane would have been happy just studying Ferrell at work on set: "I'm just a huge fan of Will, so just getting to meet him, hang out with him and watch him do his thing, that was so much fun."
And the actress is convinced fans will be blown away by action man Wahlberg's latest comedy role.
She says, "I think Mark Wahlberg is really, really funny. I think he's gonna surprise people by how funny he is because I know he did I Heart Huckabees and you've seen him be funny but this is like, you really get to see him."
The Departed star Wahlberg also showed off his funny side in Steve Carrell and Tina Fey's romantic comedy Date Night earlier this year (10).
When retired U.S. Special Forces Soldier Chris Vaughn (Johnson) returns to Kipsat County Wash. it's only to find his hometown overrun with crime drugs and violence. The old mill where Chris's father (John Beasley) worked for most of his life is closed and the town's only thriving industry is the Wild Cherry casino. Even Chris' high school sweetie Deni (Ashley Scott) couldn't resist the Wild Cherry's lure; she's become a peepshow dancer to "pay the bills." But Chris really loses it when he discovers the casino's dealers are using loaded dice--and he starts a brawl that ends with the security team carving up his chest and abdomen with a rusty Exacto knife. Chris also learns that that his old high school rival the casino's owner Jay Hamilton (Neal McDonough) has transformed the mill into a crystal meth lab and is using the casino's menacing security staff to sell the drugs to innocent kids. Chris strikes back by running for sheriff firing the entire police department on his first day and with the help of a cedar two-by-four and his deputy and buddy Ray Templeton (Johnny Knoxville) restores peace to the Pacific Northwest.
Johnson looking buffer than ever is well cast in the role of Chris: He's a fearless and determined soldier with beyond-human fighting skills. But while the film takes advantage of Johnson's brawn it fails to take advantage of his brain. In last year's comedy The Rundown Johnson proved he was more than a muscle-bound action star; he oozed charm and was surprisingly witty. With Walking Tall he never gets a chance to flex his acting muscles; if anything they atrophy. The only skills Johnson gets to show off are his ability to swing a plank at someone's shins and his unique way of bashing skulls against slot machines. Johnson's sidekick Ray played by Knoxville of MTV's Jackass fame is an ex-junkie who after spending a couple of years in the slammer is content with living in a camper and doing odd jobs around town. With his scraggly appearance and klutzy demeanor Knoxville supplies the film with brief interludes of humor amid the slam fest including a scene in which he stabs a bad guy with a potato peeler. Johnson and Knoxville would have made a first-rate action team had they had more screen time together.
A WWE production with Vince McMahon serving as executive producer Walking Tall has none of the subtlety of director Kevin Bray's last film All About the Benjamins and all the elements of a wrestling match. As with wrestling the film begins by melodramatically establishing the story (Chris and his family's lives are devastated by the mill's closure) and just like rival pugilists who publicly taunt the favored wrestler Chris challenges Jay--not for the world title but at least for control of Kipsat County--in a never-ending battle between good and evil that mimics wrestling to a T. But what's entertaining in the ring doesn't translate to film especially when the good guy running the town is a maniacal meathead. Chris is supposed to be the protagonist who single-handedly saves the town but who's responding to the citizens' domestic violence calls for example when the sheriff fires the entire precinct and spends 24 hours a day casing the casino? Never mind the fact that he has sex with his girlfriend in his office while he's on the clock.
