As unserious as every character Will Ferrell plays is, is as serious as this concept is. As reported by The Wrap, Ferrell has plans to star in a Spanish language comedy called Casa de mi Padre (House of My Father). Ferrell's publicist wouldn't confirm the news and the plot details have yet to be revealed, but the project will supposedly be subtitled in English. The plan is to have Ferrell produce through his company Gary Sanchez Productions and have one of his Funny or Die buddies direct it, but that man will not be Adam McKay. We'll likely find out more soon because casting has already begun.

I'm not knocking foreign films entirely, but I've got to admit, sometimes it's harder to make a connection with the material when you've got to rely on subtitles. Ferrell is more than enough to handle when he's just messing around in English, how are we supposed to digest his antics via text? If he's going to pull this off, the dialogue is going to have to be top-notch; he can't rely on silly slapstick like he normally does.
