Legendary Pictures has tapped to star in an UNTITLED ESPORTS COMEDY from scribes Michael Kvamme and Jordan Dunn. Legendary will produce alongside Mosaic and Gary Sanchez Productions.

The film takes a comedic look into the quickly growing sports gaming arena in pop culture. It centers on Ferrell as a member of a professional eSports team who is also an anomaly in a sport where players usually retire in their 20s due to slowing hand-eye . Two real top eSports teams, Evil Geniuses and Fnatic, are in talks to take part in the film.

Gravity Squared’s Patrick Connelly and John Beach will co-produce. Universal is handling world distribution outside of China.

This isn’t Ferrell’s first venture into sports comedies having previously starred in Semi-Pro and Talladega Nights. He is currently at work on Holmes & Watson, a comedy that reunites Ferrell with his Step Brothers cohort John C. Reilly.

He is repped by and Mosaic.
