Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly to Reunite For Halloween Comedy ‘Devil’s Night’
Produced by their ‘Step Brothers’ and ‘Talladega Nights’ director Adam McKay, The Wrap says ‘Devil’s Night’ will take place on October 30th and will deal with a pair of feuding neighbors (Ferrell and Reilly) who must join forces to stop kids from destroying their town with toilet paper and eggs.
Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul (‘Yes Man’) are writing the script for Sony Pictures.
‘Devil’s Night’ would be the third film where Ferrell and Reilly co-starred together after ‘Step Brothers’ and ‘Talladega Nights’ (excluding, of course, their many cameos, like the forthcoming ‘Anchorman 2‘). There was, at one time, serious talk about a ‘Step Brothers 2′ and a Huff & Doback rap album that would expand upon the smash hit “Boats ‘N Hoes,” but both were put on hold to instead focus on ‘Anchorman 2.’ And while this film isn’t a specific sequel, it should feature enough of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly hating each other, then being friends, then hating each other and then being friends again to tide you over.
