A new batch of images from Will Ferrell’s “Casa de mi Padre”, cause what’s funnier than Will Ferrell doing a movie entirely in Spanish? Well, okay, there’s plenty that could be funnier than that, but I dunno, if “Casa de mi Padre” works, it could really work. But if it doesn’t? Man, I don’t want to think about the 90 minutes of sitting through this thing. I guess we’ll find out when the film screens down in Austin next month before opening in theaters March 16, 2012.
Armando Alvarez has lived and worked on his father’s ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch encounters financial difficulties, Armando’s younger brother Raul, shows up with his new fiancee, Sonia. It seems that Raul’s success as an international businessman means the ranch’s troubles are over as he pledges to settle all debts. But when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul’s business dealings turn out to be criminal, all hell breaks loose as they find themselves in a war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza.
Starring Will Ferrell, Gael García Bernal, Diego Luna, Genesis Rodriguez, Pedro Armendáriz Jr., Nick Offerman, Effren Ramirez, Adrian Martinez, and directed by Matt Piedmont.
