Will Ferrell and Jason Momoa are teaming up for a new comedy movie.
The as-yet-untitled film, from studio Paramount, will focus on Ferrell playing a washed-up TV actor who reunites with his on-screen son, played by Momoa, who has since become a huge star.
Actor and screenwriter Jarrad Paul, who has signed on to pen the plotline for the upcoming Bruce Almighty sequel, will team up with Andrew Mogel for the movie’s script, with Nick Stoller and Ferrell’s Gary Sanchez company producing the film, according to Variety.
Following the announcement, Momoa, 37, couldn’t contain his delight at being cast opposite Ferrell in his comedy movie debut, and posted a screenshot of the news on Instagram on Friday (05May17).
