Will Ferrell is attached to star and Craig Gillespie is in talks to direct The Flamingo Thief says Variety.
Michael LeSieur adapted
author Susan Trott's book about a lawyer who becomes
obsessed with stealing figurines of flamingos after his wife leaves him.
Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld will produce.
No production schedule has been released
since Ferrell is committed to both Anchorman 2 and the football comedy "Three Mississippi".
