Will Ferrell is a vastly talented individual, but I think he’s unfortunately been slapped with the Jim Carrey curse — yes, he can stretch his acting chops (“Stranger than Fiction”, “Winter Passing”), but the audience doesn’t want him to. Then again, life could be worst. Anyhow, Cinematical‘s got your first look at the new poster for Will Ferrell’s “Semi-Pro” (thumbnail to your left, bigger version below). The film, written by Scot Armstrong and directed by Kent Alterman, revolves around Jackie Moon (Ferrell), the owner-coach-player of the American Basketball Association’s Flint Michigan Tropics, who rallies his teammates to make their NBA dreams come true. And much hilarity ensues. And such.
Here’s another description:
A former benchwarmer from the NBA returns to his rag-tag team in the American Basketball Association in an attempt to lead them to the big leagues.
Starring Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson, Andre ‘Andre 3000’ Benjamin, Jay Phillips, Will Arnett.
The opening tip-off is February 29th, 2008.
