Will Ferrell to go back to school?
Will Ferrell could be returning to college for the upcoming comedy Crazy U.
The Step-Brothers star is said to be in talks to take the lead role as an outlandish dad in the big-screen adaptation of Andrew Ferguson's book Crazy U: One Dad's Crash Course In Getting His Kid Into College, reported Deadline.
The memoir follows Andrew's mission to get his son into the right university and his obsessive compulsion to do everything correctly to win the cut-throat competition, including meeting a private college consultant, helping his child prepare for exams and talking with essay coaches.
Will would also produce alongside his Gary Sanchez partner Adam McKay and Jessica Elbaum.
The 44-year-old, who previously starred in drama Everything Must Go, will next appear in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters alongside Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner.
