Will Ferrell is no stranger to playing a president after years of imitating George W. Bush on SNL. But this time he'll play the president who that other president's father was vice president to: Ronald Reagan. Huh! The Black List script from Mike Rosolio tells the story of Ronald Reagan sliding into dementia during his second term and an intern who is tasked with convincing the president that he's an actor playing the president in a movie. Ferrell and Gary Sanchez Productions will produce, but the team is still looking for a director. Send in your applications.
