Shooting Starts on ‘The Other Guys’

Principal photography begins today on Columbia Pictures' action-comedy The Other Guys, starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. The film is directed by Adam McKay and written by Adam McKay & Chris Henchy. The film is a co-production between Gary Sanchez Productions and Mosaic. Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, Jimmy Miller, and Patrick Crowley produce. David Householter, Chris Henchy and Kevin Messick are the Executive Producers. Jessica Elbaum and Josh Church serve as Co-Producers.

Set in New York City, The Other Guys follows Detective Allen Gamble (Ferrell), a forensic accountant who's more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets, and Detective Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg), who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since an embarrassing public incident with his quick trigger finger. Allen and Terry idolize the city's top cops, Danson and Manzetti (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson), but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don't quite go as planned.

McKay said, "Though Will and I no longer speak, I still love making movies with him. Will it be tense on set? Absolutely. But fortunately Mark Wahlberg and I have formed a friendship based on our mutual problems with Will. So that's good."

The cast includes Eva Mendes as Sheila, Allen's incredibly plain wife; Michael Keaton as Captain Mauch; and Steve Coogan as billionaire investment banker David Ershon. Ray Stevenson, Rob Riggle, Damon Wayans, Jr. and Lindsay Sloane round out the supporting cast.

Sir Oliver Wood serves as the film's Director of Photography, with Clayton Hartley acting as the Production Designer. The film is edited by Brent White. Costume Designer is Carol Ramsey.

The Other Guys was released August 6th, 2010.

        Here is a very nice place-------F*ckthebriansoutofawizard.com-----

        It's where Wizards look for someone to enjoy their magical lifestyle with. Come in and stay a while. Post a message via spell casting, a pic of your wand and/or wizard's cap and check out the black magic galleries. You will find someone you like there (or get cursed)...
