Watch: 'Casa de mi Padre' Trailer with Will Ferrell Only in Spanish
Wait what? Yep, you read that right, this is that (awesome) new film starring Will Ferrell where he actually only speaks Spanish the entire film. It's not as much of a gimmick as you think, because it's actually just a comedy about a guy who has lived and worked on his father's ranch in Mexico for his entire life but ends up getting into a war with Mexico's most feared drug lord. It's titled Casa de mi Padre, which translates to House of My Father, and the trailer was found on YouTube via GATW. Whoa does this looks crazy yet potentially brilliant. This is exactly what I wanted out of Nacho Libre. I'm in, this is hilarious!
Watch the first (unofficial) trailer for Matt Piedmont's Casa de mi Padre, embedded via YouTube:
Armando Alvarez has lived and worked on his father's ranch in Mexico his entire life. When he encounters financial difficulties, Armando's younger brother Raul shows up with his new fiancé. But when Armando falls for Sonia, all hell breaks loose as they find themselves in a war with Mexico's most feared drug lord.
Casa de mi Padre, or The House of My Father in Spanish, is directed by Matt Piedmont, a former comedy writer and director for Funny or Die, from a screenplay written by Andrew Steele. Not the kind of people you'd expect. The film was produced by Will Ferrell's company Gary Sanchez Productions. As far as we know, this doesn't have a distributor, so we'll have to wait to hear more about plans for release or a film fest.
