Four Funny Guys Join Ferrell's Race Comedy
"The story follows Ricky Bobby (Ferrell), a world-class race car driver and fan favorite. Cohen ... will play Jean Girard, a gay, French Formula One driver who comes to the U.S. to conquer NASCAR and defeat Ferrell. Reilly ... will play Cal Naughton, Ferrell's boyhood friend who together with Ferrell forms "Thunder & Lightning," the most feared racing duo in NASCAR."
Ferrell's frequent collaborator, Adam McKay, is directing and co-writing with the comedian.
