But it seems the experience was rather a sobering one for the funny man.
Ferrell is making a comedy comeback that fans will be proud of in the shape of He’s F*****g Perfect.
The writer/actor/producer will be overseeing the new project penned by Lauren Kahn, prodige of Ferrell’s production partner, Adam McKay.
As her first solo big-screen project, Kahn will tell the story of a woman who Facebook-stalks the blokes her friends are dating so she can warn them if anything crops up or they turn out to be losers. Oh dear.
But then she spots one who she considers perfect, and starts trying to convince her pal to dump him so she can date him instead. Oh dear, oh dear.
There is no director attached to the movie yet but Fox 2000 has nabbed the spec, with Ferrell and McKay agreeing to produce.
That reminds me, my friend has just posted that she is “in a relationship”….back in a sec….
