Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly To Star In Crime Solving Comedy ‘Holmes & Watson’


It’s been eight years since Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly co-headlined the modern comedy classic Step Brothers. The two seem such a natural pair it’s surprising that thir only other feature together was Talladega Nights. Finally, a project has come along to bring the actors back together. Ferrell and Reilly will star as the respective title characters in Holmes & Watson, a PG-13 comedy take on Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic Sherlock Holmes stories, and it will be directed by Etan Cohen. Though production is expected to start right after Thanksgiving, there’s no word yet on a target release date.
