Legendary Entertainment Signs Will Ferrell For eSports Movie

by Kevin Slackie on Dec 06, 2016 at 09:10 AM

The same film studio that brought Inception and the Warcraft movie to life has set its sights on the world of eSports. Will Ferrell, best known for his roles on SNL and Anchorman, will be the main character of this untitled movie.

The script was written by the same writers for Spongebob Squarepants 3, with Will Ferrell taking on a similar character as his one in Talladega Nights. Evil Geniuses and Fnactic also seem to be in talks to appear in the film.

There is no current release date for the film.

Our Take
While it isn't strange to see studios courting the idea of romanticizing the idea of eSports, this casting pick is. I think I'll stick with watching either Video Game Highschool or The Street Fighter for my eSports dramas.
