The man who brought us cherished movies like “Step Brothers” and “Anchorman” has found himself in another zany blockbuster, this time centred on the world of eSports.
For his next movie, Ferrell will take on the role of a professional eSports team member. In a sport that hosts competitors as young as 15 and sees players retiring in their early 20s, Ferrell will certainly be an anomaly in an already pretty ridiculous field.
Supposedly, the film is set to feature eSports teams Evil Geniuses and Fnatic, who are often mentioned as the best in the world. Hopefully their additions will quell the furious rage that seems to have risen from a number of die hard eSports fans on the internet.
In addition to Ferrell’s involvement, the film is being produced by Legendary, Mosaic and Gary Sanchez Productions which will hopefully lead to an authentic end-product.
There seems to have been a lot of eye-rolling following Will’s involvement in the movie but I feel as if people are forgetting that this is WILL FERRELL and his movie choices are normally pretty sound.
Good luck to ya Will, hopefully this movie becomes another great in your already hilarious catalogue.
