Will Ferrell to Play Ronald Reagan

Years after famously portraying George W. Bush in comedy sketches and on Broadway, actor Will Ferrell is set to play Ronald Reagan in a feature-length film. According to Variety, Ferrell is attached to star as the late president in the Mike Rosolio-penned Reagan, a satire about Reagan's second term where he suffers from dementia and an intern is responsible with convincing the ex-actor that he is simply playing a president in order to keep the White House afloat. Ferrell will also produce the film, alongside Gary Sanchez Productions, but no director is attached to the project yet.
