Will Ferrell will star in the comedy "The House" says Variety.
The story follows a husband (Ferrell) who joins with his neighbors to start an
illegal casino in his basement after he and his wife blow their
daughter’s college fund.
The script comes from Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O'Brien, who wrote last year's comedy hit Neighbors. Cohen will make his directorial debut on the pic.
Ferrell and Adam McKay will produce the film while Chris Henchy and Jessica Elbaum are exec producing.
Production hopes to start in August.
