Will Ferrell has signed onto star in and produce an adaptation of Crazy U for New Line Cinema and his Gary Sanchez Productions.
The project is based on Andrew Ferguson's non-fiction book Crazy U: One Dad's Crash Course in Getting His Kid Into College. The story centers on a father who is obsessed with getting his son into the perfect college, which involves hiring a professional college consultant, helping his son pass the SAT's, and leading him through college interviews and tours. Since this project is being developed as a starring vehicle for Will Ferrell, it is believed he will play the father in Crazy U.
No screenwriter or director have been attached to Crazy U at this time.
