Will Ferrell is going to star in an eSports comedy

1 min read

You either love or hate Will Ferrell, there’s no in between. The man whose shouting and screaming has left many of us gasping for air has been a comedic icon for most millenial movie goers, and now he’s set to play, in my opinion, his most important role of all time. Legendary Entertainment, the studio that brought us Inception and the Warcraft Movie is now setting its sights on eSports with Will Ferrell set to play the lead role. What can we expect from Ferrell? Think Talladega Nights, only eSportsy.


Will Ferrell is best known for his runs on Saturday Night Live playing a host of characters, but most famous for his George W. Bush impersonations. In his film career we’ve seen him move from Mugatu to Ron Burgundy in Anchorman, also joined by an entourage of fantastic actors backing up his performances. These include Paul Rudd, John C. Reily, and more (who I’m praying will feature in the film).  Not much is known about the story, actors, or plot, but there are reports that both Evil Genius and Fnatic will feature according to Dot Esports. Reports also revealed that the script is being written by the same writers who brought Spongebob Squarepants 3 to life and Ferrell’s character will be similar to Ricky Bobby from Talladega Nights. Haven’t seen Talladega Nights? Here’s the best scene.

Whether or not the comedy will be well received by the community is still up for discussion as Ferrell’s films usually tend to poke fun, like at the Nascar crazy American culture. Needless to say I’m excited, and up till now all we’ve seen are heartfelt documentaries regarding eSports so the change of pace is definitely welcomed in my opinion.

    I would rather wanna see Andy Samberg in a e-sports comedy.

    He could actually pull it off. Will Ferrell at best gets maybe a chuckle.

    Edit:Well except for the Lego Movie.He was awesome like everything in that movie

      Agreed. Busy watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine at the moment and Andy Samberg would be perfect for this.

        I watched the 1st part of Popstar: Never Stop Stopping last night. It is amazing in it’s stupidity.

    This is a complete win/win for me. If it’s good I get to enjoy a good comedy, and if it’s bad I get to enjoy the sweet yet salty nectar of sensitive gamer tears.

      Bad news buddy. Gamers are so desensitized from an overload of terribad or at the very best mediocre game films that you ain’t getting no tears.
