Will Ferrell is turning his attention to insects.
Bob Cooper’s Landscape Entertainment has set up at Universal the pitch “Fly on the Wall” (working title), penned by “Emperor’s Club” scribe Neil Tolkin.
Comedy, which sold for high-six figures, is being developed as a potential starring vehicle for Ferrell.
Pic centers on a down-on-his-luck lawyer whose life starts to take a turn for the better after he innocently saves the life of a fly.
Universal’s Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark are overseeing the project for the studio.
Ferrell is filming the soccer comedy “Kicking & Screaming” for Universal.
He will next star in DreamWorks’ “Anchor Man,” set for release this July. Upcoming projects also include “Winter Passing” and Woody Allen’s “Melinda and Melinda.”
He is also set to star in “Bewitched” opposite Nicole Kidman for Columbia Pictures.
Tolkin also recently turned in a rewrite on “Iron Man,” Universal’s biopic about Olympian athlete and track star Lou Zamperini.
Bob Cooper’s Landscape Entertainment recently set up two comedies at New Line Cinema: “Man in Uniform” and “Lowest Common Denominator.”
