Richard Linklater to Direct Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis

These guys.

Were you your only friend that was like, super into The Campaign? Like at every chill hang you suggest putting it on, but you get rebuffed and your friends just put on Old School for the 80th time? Well, today is your day. This morning news came out of Cannes that Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis have signed on to star in another movie together, an adaptation of Daniel Asa Rose's memoir Larry's Kidney. If that isn't exciting enough, Richard Linklater is attached to direct. Ferrell will play Rose, who went to China to help his cousin Larry (Galifianakis) find a kidney transplant. No word on when they'll start shooting or if Ferrell will punch a Chinese baby.
