Weirdest Movie News of the Day: Joan of Bark?

Since Paul Thomas Anderson recently directed Adam Sandler in a film, hey, why not have David Mamet work with Will Ferrell?

Empire reports:

One is a comedian who specialises in pulling faces and dive-bombing innocent swimming pools; the other a Pulitzer prize-winning dramatist with a nice line in bad language and endlessly quotable dialogue. But now Will Ferrell and David Mamet are to team up to make Joan of Bark: The Dog that Saved France.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
