Awkwafina and Sandra Oh Will Play Sisters in New Will Ferrell Produced Comedy

December 16, 2021

A new, currently untitled comedy produced by Will Ferrell will see Shang-Chi star Awkwafina and Killing Eve’s Sandra Oh play sisters in a story by Hocus Pocus 2 scribe Jen D’Angelo that seems to revolve around the popular game show Jeopardy. Deadline reports that 20th Century Studios have fought off some stiff competition to acquire the rights to the project, and have already tapped Jessica Yu to direct. While the project was originally announced back in October 2020 with Ferrell and Jessica Elbaum signed on as producers, there has been very little word on it since then, and with so many projects falling by the wayside due to the COVID pandemic and the uncertainty around movie releases, it seemed that this could have been another casualty. However, it now appears that this development will now get things moving on the film.
