According to the report by Variety, "Ferrell plays an IRS auditor who finds himself the subject of narration that only he can hear." Gyllenhaal will probably play Ferrell’s love interest. Marc Forster ("Finding Neverland") will direct from a script by Zach Helm. Production is scheduled to begin in April.
