According to Slashfilm.com Turkey Bowl will feature Wahlberg and Ferrell as rival football fans who compete in a neighborhood vs. neighborhood tackle game for bragging rights. Deadline.com reported that Alec Baldwin is already aboard as Wahlberg's father and that the project will be written by 30 Rock's Robert Carlock, and Scott Silveri, with the story by Owen Burke of Gary Sanchez Productions. According to Firstshowing.net there are plans to have tons of cameos, resembling those in Anchorman where Ben Stiller, Tim Robbins and Luke Wilson showed up during a news team gang fight, and The Other Guys where Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) and Samuel L. Jackson made an appearance as cocky detectives.
The film will most probably be released late next year as the Turkey Bowl is still only in the very early stages of development, but I’m already looking forward to wiping away tears of laughter. What to you think of the odd couple, Will and Mark, teaming up again?
