Here is your first look at Will Ferrell in his upcoming new indie film Everything must go, in which he won't be playing his crazy self. This seems like it will be a more serious role for him. The film was directed by Dan Rush, and it's based on a short story by Raymond Carver, the film follows Ferrell as a man who opts to live his life as a sort of permanent yard sale - literally - when his job and family fall apart.
Here's the official Synopsis for the film:
After 16 years devising motivational speeches that promise certain success, Nick Porter (Will Ferrell) is abruptly fired. He returns home to discover his wife has left him, changed the locks on their home and dumped all his possessions on the front yard. Nick puts it all on the line - or, more properly, on the lawn - with an absurdly escalating garage sale that becomes a unique strategy for survival. Nick comes face-to-face with a life turned inside out and discovers in total exposure an unexpected path to renewal.
