UPDATE: Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg's "3 Mississippi" gets a writer/director combo

UPDATE:  Due to scheduling conflicts, Mark Wahlberg has been replaced by Adam Sandler in 3 Mississippi.  I'm bummed about it, but I'll post more as we approach.

Remember last year when it was announced that Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg were re-teaming to do a football movie?  Well it was tentatively titled Turkey Bowl back then, and 3 Mississippi now.  Good news, capable men have been hired to write and direct the comedy.  Sean Anders and John Morris have been brought onto the project.

Anders and Morris are most famous for their work on such films as Hot Tub Time Machine, She's Out of My League, and Sex Drive.  Here's also a fun little tidbit; they've been hired to write the sequel to Dumb & Dumber.  Hopefully 3 Mississippi and Dumb & Dumber live up to the hype.  I'll let you know what happens as we approach filming on both movies.
