Will Ferrell to Star in North Pole Expedition Buddy Comedy

By

Will Ferrell just landed another film role. According to Deadline, Ferrell has signed on to star in a movie adaptation of Guy Lawson’s New York Times Magazine article from last month “Ice Pack: An Insurance Salesman and a Doctor Walk Into a Bar, and End Up at the North Pole.” Like the article, the film tells the story of “the most unlikely snowy Arctic expedition in history — when a group of Minnesota guys in 1968 acted on a whim hatched on a night of drinking and set off to ride snowmobiles to the North Pole.” Ferrell and the movie’s producers are reportedly looking to turn it into a buddy comedy in the vein of City Slickers.
