Actors Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell will play competing South Carolina politicians in a comedy coming out in the fall of 2012.
According to the entertainment website Movieweb, “Southern Rivals” will start production this fall. The story centers on two politicians aiming for a political position in “a small congressional district in South Carolina.”
The modern-day political comedy will be directed by Jay Roach (“Meet the Parents, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery”).
Ferrell talked about the movie to reporters during a press tour for his latest movie, “Everything Must Go,” featured in the Tribeca Film Festival.
So, if "Southern Rivals" were to feature characters based on real-life politicians from South Carolina, who should they cast?
Jennifer Connelly (“A Beautiful Mind”) as Nikki Haley? Matthew Fox (“Lost”) as Mark Sanford?
