Will Ferrell set to become presidential again to play Ronald Reagan

Will Ferrell is about to become a commander-in-chief all over again.

Having already played George W. Bush for his Broadway show (an impression he first developed during his time on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE), Ferrell is moving earlier into the Republican Presidential archives in order to play Ronald Reagan for the previously unproduced Black List script REAGAN. 

Written by Mike Rosolio, REAGAN would see Ferrell as the 40th President of the United States at the beginning of his second term. However, beginning to suffer from dementia, an intern is given the task of convincing the President that he is nothing more than an actor playing the President for a movie role. 

Last month, following its inclusion on the Black List, a live read of the REAGAN script was performed with Lena Dunham and John Cho, among others, and is said to have gone over hilariously. There's no doubt that some will be less than pleased by the target of said project, but comedy is comedy, right? Nothing is out of bounds if your material is strong enough.

Sooooo....

In eight years a semi-senile former actor and his intern changed the course of our Nation and the world for the better and away from the crushing oppression of socialism as opposed to the 8 years of the current coddled, narcissistic O-hole's disastrous foreign domestic and fiscal policies.

Count me in. :)
(PS If you are doing SNL takes on Reagan look up the Phil Hartman version.)

Hmm, Ferrell is very hit or miss, so I'm not sure about this. I saw some skit where Jim Carrey was playing Reagan, and he was really good. That would have been more interesting, since it's been a while since Carrey has had a hit.

No doubt an excuse to regurgitate liberal narratives and lies. No thanks. And by the way Hollywood - when it comes to this culture war, YOU ARE LOSING.

I would prefer Mike Myers...

I feel like Will is played out and boring these days. I REALLY wish Mike Myers would come out of retirement and do this movie.

I think it would have been much better if he played a fictional character based on Reagan because that way Will can be vulgar and direct without restraining himself too much to the source material.
