Robert Carlock and Scott Silveri sold the comedy pitch about an annual football ritual
Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg will reunite in Warner Bros. "Turkey Bowl," a comedy about an annual football game.
They last worked together in last year's Columbia Pictures "The Other Guys."
It's a Ferrell comedy: broad, physical comedy and lots of cameos.
Warner has closed a deal with the writers, Scott Silveri and Robert Carlock, based on their pitch.
Carlock knows his comedy: He's executive producer of "30 Rock," he wrote for "Joey" and "Friends," and he's a former staff writer for "Saturday Night Live," where he worked with Ferrell.
Silveri is a "Joey" and "Friends" alumnus, as well.
Warners is still closing the deal with Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy, who are producing through Gary Sanchez and Wahlberg, who's producing through his Closest to the Hole.
