Will Ferrell Backs Out Of Ronald Reagan Comedy | Film News
Comedy has many faces, some of them completely inappropriate. Such a fact becomes alarmingly apparent with the news that Will Ferrell has backed out of a US comedy making light of Ronald Reagan’s affliction with Alzheimer’s – one that ultimately killed him – following outrage from the former president’s family.
The new comedy, which Ferrell was attached to star and produce, was written by Mike Rosolio, and was due to document the start of the president’s second term in office, when he begins to show signs of the disease. The plot centres around an intern who has the job of convincing the president that he is an actor playing the president in a movie.
