Rachel McAdams Reuniting with WEDDING CRASHERS Director David Dobkin and Co-Star Will Ferrell for EUROVISION
Rachel McAdams (The Notebook, Spotlight) is currently in talks to jump on board Netflix’s comedy Eurovision. The comedy was written by Will Ferrell, who will also star, and will be directed by David Dobkin, who directed both McAdams and Ferrell in Wedding Crashers.
The comedy is based on “The Eurovision Song Contest, the longest-running annual international TV song competition. The contest is famous around the world with former winners including ABBA (won in 1974 for Sweden) and Celine Dion (won in 1988 for Switzerland) who went on to have iconic careers. The contest started in 1956 with seven West European nations participating. The 63rd edition of the competition had 43 countries competing for top prize. At the finale in Lisbon last year, Israel was named the winner with the song ‘Toy,’ performed by Netta.”
We reported earlier this year that Ferrell had teamed up with his longtime collaborator Andrew Steele to write the script and that we would be hearing Ferrell sing in this movie! Which is perfect, because as we all know, Ferrell sounds just like a combination of Fergie and Jesus.
Eurovision is in pre-production. Are you excited to see this movie?
