Will Ferrell has finally signed on to star in Vince Gilligan's upcoming comedic drama Two Face. According to Variety, the actor has long considered tackling this Sony Pictures produced project.

Ferrell will play a racist in the film. After one of his many pranks goes horribly wrong, he develops a split personality. Mark Johnson and Jimmy Miller will produce the long gestating Two Face.

A director is currently being sought, as Sony hopes to have the film in production by early next year. If everything goes according to plan, Ferrell will most likely shoot Two Face before he gets to work on the Etan Cohen scripted Sherlock Holmes and Watson, a comedy that he will be co-starring in with Sasha Baron Cohen.
