First Look: Will Ferrell in Indie Dramedy 'Everything Must Go'
Oh yes, this looks so good! Our friends at IONCinema.com found the first few photos from an indie comedy coming up soon called Everything Must Go starring the one-and-only Will Ferrell. In brief, the plot is about a guy who loses his job and gets locked out of his house by his wife. She puts all of his belongings on the front lawn, so he spends the next four days trying to sell off his possessions in an impromptu yard sale, hence "Everything Must Go." Ferrell doesn't often do indies like this, and its been ScriptShadow's favorite script for a long time, which makes me even more interested knowing that it could be a fantastic indie gem.
Everything Must Go is set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month and we'll be there to see it. Carson Reeves of ScriptShadow explains: "The script is dark, but with glorious moments of black humor. Throwing a serious actor in there may not have allowed those sparks of humor to shine, and this script needs those beats to add some levity." It's listed as a drama on IMDb, but sounds more like a black comedy. Everything Must Go is written and directed by first-time feature filmmaker Dan Rush, from a short story by Raymond Carver. It does not have a distributor yet. We'll definitely have a review and more from Toronto!
Read this script about a year ago. Very good. I'll be attending TIFF again this year but I will likely have to miss this one.

Ferrel is a very smart move for this one.

I read the script too, as well as Carver's short story collection "What We Talk About...". The script greatly differs from the story, but still stands well on its own. Hopefully the film will too.

He can actually act, Stranger Than Fiction really became one of my favorite films, and this looks to be in the same vein, as STF.

Ferrell was great in Stranger Than Fiction...he actually made that film more than anyone else involved with it(although the visual style, editing and direction was very snappy and great). I just noticed looking at these photos, man Ferrell is starting to look like my grandma...he's really getting old and ugly.

Yay, this reminds me of Stranger than Fiction (not the actual plot, but the feel of the film), and that's by far my favorite Will Ferrell movie thus far.

Glad to see the Stranger Than Fiction love, this does seem to be the same kind of role for Ferrell so I am excited to see it.

Yeah, I loved him in Stranger Than Fiction, so I'm intrigued to see his approach in this.

If a woman ever does this to me I'm going to do the exact same thing.
