Adam McKay Reveals Plot for Will Ferrell's "Turkey Ball" Football Comedy

Posted: May 27th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Adam McKay Reveals Plot for Will FerrellSubmit Comment
A few days ago we reported that Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are re-teaming for a football comedy called "Turkey Ball." Entertainment Weekly now caught up with director Adam McKay (The Other Guys, Anchorman), who revealed the plot of the film.

He said: "It's about these two rival families. Alec Baldwin is the patriarch of one of the families, and Wahlberg is his son. He saw the Kennedys playing football on their front lawn at Thanksgiving, and boom, that's it: 'Anything the Kennedys do, we're doing.' His family starts playing the other family that lives across the park from them. Over the years, Baldwin's family hasn't done too well - they own a crappy little bar in town - while the other family, which Will's character eventually becomes the patriarch of, becomes really successful. The game gets nastier and nastier as the years go on, and Ferrell's family starts just destroying the other family."

"After a massive heart attack, Baldwin's character's dying wish is that his estranged son, Mark, take over the game and finally win one. So Wahlberg has to put this ramshackle, convict, gambling-addict family back together again and beat the richies. The whole spirit of it is that it's just a giant, fun ensemble comedy. We want to populate it with people we love. There's a funny subplot with Rob Riggle where he's a gay cousin that Wahlberg's family sort of turned their backs on but he played football at Fresno State and they need him. We're going to try to get Jeremy Renner to play an ex-con. The idea is to bring in, like, 15 people that we love in and just do a big, funny holiday movie."

McKay said that he will not direct the film, just produce. And that the title has already been changed to "Three Mississippi." "If we could shoot this thing next spring, we could roll it out that following Thanksgiving," he said about the release plan.

If they get a nice cast this could be fun. Somehow they must have Terry Crews in this.

^^Lol love that. Terry Crews, adopted son. Tie in the gay sub plot to that so you have the gay guy who excels at football and the black muscle guy how stinks at it.

Jeremy Renner as an Ex-con? Don't think he can pull it off.

@freud

He can be the gay cousins' boyfriend..lol

I'm surprised a Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg film isn't getting more negativity, because these two alone are terrible, and we saw how onderfully they worked together in The Other Guys, so, dunno, should be a slam-dunk no-watch on this one, regardless of the director, who I might add helmed The Other Guys.
