When Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly team up for movies, the comedic stars align.
While it may not be the smartest of comedies, you cannot deny their cleverness. With movies like Talledega Nights and Step Brothers under your belt, you know that when they get together its going to be something special.
Variety reports that the dynamic-duo are set to team up in a new flick, a comedic take on the “Sherlock Holmes” story. The new movie, Holmes and Watson, will see Ferrell play the famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and Reilly will play the faithful sidekick, Dr.Watson.
Etan Cohen will direct from his own script about a duo that faces off against enemies from across the globe. Cohen’s writing credits include “Tropic Thunder,” “Men In Black III”, and “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.”
All I can say is, just the idea of the movie has me laughing already.
