Hmmmm. Not sure how I feel about this one. Will Ferrell has been cast in the lead role of $10 million indie film "Everything Must Go."
Based on a Raymond Carver short story "Why Don't You Dance," it centers on a man attempting to sell all of his possessions, after his wife dumps them on the lawn and kicks him out of the house. The story, a stark and powerful piece, takes place on one night and is told more through the eyes of a couple buying the man’s belongings.
Not to take anything away from Ferrell, he can do drama when he's not acting like a goofball. I just wonder why him and why this story? Let's just hope he doesn't fuck it up. If so, there's always "Short Cuts."
I was able to muster up a crude Carver documentary on YouTube that actually shot the story. Amateurish, but it works brilliantly. Enjoy the show after the jump...
