Ferrell barks again
"Joan Of Bark: The Dog That Saved France" is set to star Ferrell and David Mamet, who worked with Will in "Old School", will pen the piece.
The new film has been described as a contemporary satire about pop culture - but the title implies a little more slapstick action.
Mamet has worked on more serious films, including "Hannibal" and "Ronin", but this latest film looks like it will be more in the vein of student comedy "Lakeboat" and political satire "Wag the dog".
Dogs saving countries might seem an odd departure for Hollywood, but a little digging shows that it is far from unique.
In 1979 "The fish that saved Pittsburgh" came out, and three years earlier "Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood" hit cinema screens across America, starring Phil Silvers.
