So, Will Ferrell felt like making a Spanish movie, and so he’s made a Spanish movie. And it’s called “Casa de mi Padre”. It will either be super funny, or awkwardly unfunny. I’ll leave that up to you to decide when the film opens next year. Until then, check out a quickie teaser trailer for the film below. And in case you missed it, we posted a longer trailer for the film way back in April here.
Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father’s ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch faces financial strains, Armando’s younger brother Raul (Diego Luna) shows up with his new fiancee, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez) and pledges to settle all his father’s debts. It seems that Raul’s success as an international businessman means the ranch’s troubles are over, but when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul’s business dealings turn out to be less than legit, the Alvarez family finds themselves in a full-out war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal).
Starring Will Ferrell, Diego Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal, Genesis Rodriguez and directed by Matt Piedmont.
The casa opens its doors March 16, 2012.
