Just yesterday Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) and Marty Huggins (Zack Galifianakis) won over animal lovers with their patriotic posters for The Campaign, the political comedy from Jay Roach (Meet the Parents, Recount). Now the two Congressional candidates are back to facing off, quite literally, as two new character posters have emerged that look phenomenal side-by-side. With their noses pressed firmly against one another, Brady and Huggins mean business. If the first trailer was any indicator of the laughs in store for this comedy, then August can't get here soon enough. Hopefully we'll see another trailer very soon. Look!
Jay Roach who has moved from comedies like Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and Meet the Parents to HBO's political dramas like Recount and Game Change is combining his experience for The Campaign, written by Chris Henchy (The Other Guys) and Shawn Harwell ("Eastbound & Down"). The film has Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis as congressional rivals from the South and also features a fantastic cast including Dan Ayrkroyd, Jason Sudeikis, Brian Cox, John Lithgow, Dylan McDermott and more. The film is expected to hit theaters just a couple months before the presidential election on August 10th, 2012.
