Thanks to a loyal Cinematical tipster, we were alerted to the news that our favorite little untitled Nascar comedy has finally snagged a name. I'm convinced everyone involved with the production had felt a tremendous amount of pressure after I threatened to not mention the film again until it had a title. Okay, maybe that's taking it a little too far, but it's Friday and I want to feel special.

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is what they're calling this one. And no, I am not making that up. Could it be that I was actually happier typing the Untitled Will Ferrell Nascar Comedy over this one? Heck, the new name is ever longer than the previous non-existant one. What's up with that?

Set in the world of Nascar, Talladega Nights will follow a rebel driver (Ferrell) who teams up with a buddy (John C. Reilly) to form a powerful driving duo while battling heavy competition from a new teammate (Sacha Baron Cohen). The film is due out this summer.
