campaign will ferrell 610 First Official Look At Will Ferrell & Zach Galifianakis In The Campaign

Entertainment Weekly has posted this first official look at Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in Jay Roach‘s upcoming political comedy ‘The Campaign.’ The movie follows rival politicians (Ferrell and Galifianakis) in a small congressional district in South Carolina. Ferrell plays a congressman who becomes embroiled in a public scandal, opening the door to a challenge from an unlikely Beltway outsider (­Galifianakis).

The likes of Jason Sudeikis, John Lithgow, Dylan McDermott, Brian Cox, Josh Lawson, Gary Grubbs, P.J Byrne, and Dan Aykroyd also star in the film, which is scheduled for a August 10th release. Shawn Harwell and frequent Ferrell collaborator Chris Henchy wrote the screenplay. I’ve got high hopes for this film, I’m extremely intrigued to see how Ferrell and Galifianakis’ unique comedy styles work together. Fingers crossed we get to see a teaser trailer soon.
