New Line acquires Crazy U and grabs Will Ferrell for the lead

If Will Ferrell has a part in something, I want to see it. I hear people say they get tired of him, but I don't.

So it's a good thing for me and the rest of the Will Ferrell fan club, that he's signing on to do another movie. The plot doesn't sound particularly exciting unfortunately. The film is titled CRAZY U is adapted from Andrew Ferguson's book Crazy U: One Dad’s Crash Course In Getting His Kid Into College about "a father’s adventures trying to brave the cutthroat competition to get his son accepted into the perfect college."

Misher Films’ Kevin Misher will produce with Gary Sanchez’s Ferrell, Adam McKay and Jessica Elbaum.

Here's a full plot synopsis: Obsessed with keeping his son from making that one wrong step that could dash the youth’s dreams, dad tries to get an audience with the most sought after and expensive private college consultant in the country, insinuates himself in helping his son past the SATs, and all the campus tours and stressful admissions interviews, all culminating in waiting for the fat envelope that will determine success or failure in getting into an elite school that will siphon off all dad’s savings.
