Studios Pitch Jay Roach Film To Zach Galifianiakis And Will Ferrell

A new film from director Jay Roach has just been pitched to Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell.

The film is a political comedy about 2 candidates during 2012’s U.S. presidential election. Roach definitley knows a bit about elections or at least ballots.  He stepped in for Sydney Pollack as the director of HBO’s 2008 Emmy-winning dramedy Recount about the 2000 Bush vs Gore election.
These are just plans at the moment, but the idea of Galifianakis and Ferrell together on screen sounds like a great recipe for fun.  Jay Roach is a good director and I would like to see what he is able to do if given the opportunity with their strong comedic timing.
What are your thoughts?
