Actor Will Ferrell has pulled out of a controversial movie that would have mocked President Reagan’s battle with dementia. The plot of the movie involved a White House intern convincing President Ronald Reagan that he was an actor playing the role of the president of the United States. …
The 48-year-old comic confirmed Friday that while he had seen the script and considered signing on to star and produce “Reagan”, he was no longer going ahead with the project.
A spokesperson for Will said, “The REAGAN script is one of a number of scripts that had been submitted to Will Ferrell which he had considered. While it is by no means a ‘Alzheimer’s comedy’ as has been suggested, Mr. Ferrell is not pursuing this project.”
