Will Ferrell once played a character who grew up in the North Pole in a movie, and now he's returning there in his latest: THR reports that Ferrell has signed up to star in Ice Pack, based on Guy Lawson's recent New York Times Magazine story "An Insurance Salesman and a Doctor Walk Into a Bar, and End Up at the North Pole." It's the real-life tale of a group of middle-aged men in the 1960s who decided they wanted to ride snowmobiles to the North Pole. So: Wild Hogs in the snow? Yes, Wild Hogs in the snow.
