Will Ferrell is reuniting with Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin for a new comedy at Netflix. The two are pairing up for the comedy movie titled Eurovision that will center on the long-running and popular singing contest of the same name that has been running for more than 60 years. To sweeten the pot just a bit, frequent Ferrell collaborator Adam McKay is on board as an executive producer. According to a new report, Will Ferrell is signed on to not only star in, but also co-write Eurovision alongside Andrew Steele. Some of Steele's previous credits include Funny or Die Presents... and serving as the head writer on Saturday Night Live for a spell. Steele also penned Ferrell's 2012 Spanish comedy Casa de mi Padre. There is no indication currently as to who Ferrell is going to play in the movie.

I was eight years old on March 5, 1953. That's the date officially listed as the date when Joseph Stalin died, after being stricken with a stroke four days before. Mine was not a news-consuming family. I had two uncles--attorneys both--who avidly kept up with the news but my immediate family seemed more news averse than anything else (on the general grounds that all news is bad). I remember watching John Cameron Swayze "hop scotch the news" on NBC on our 17-inch RCA (the first one on the block) but I don't remember an adult ever watching it with me. I think, frankly, I had been parked there as a babysitting maneuver. All I remember about Stalin's death and the aftermath is that we Americans (young and old) were initially told that a duo consisting of Gyorgi Maleonkov and Nicholais Bulganin was now in charge.
