Secret Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig Lifetime Movie Confirmed Despite Denials (PHOTO)
Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig have a “secret” Lifetime movie and it airs on Saturday, June 20. Ferrell sent out a statement last month that the movie had been pulled, but THR spotted a billboard confirming that the movie will indeed air.
A Deadly Adoption has the tagline: “the birth of a plan gone wrong.”
The movie description from THR:
The duo stars in the dramatic thriller as a successful couple who house and care for a pregnant woman (played by 90210 alum Jessica Lowndes) in the hopes of adopting her unborn child — then things quickly go awry. The movie is described as a campy, fun, contemporary wink at the genre, and it comes as Lifetime is poised to mark the 25th anniversary of its TV movie business.
Last month, Will Ferrell’s statement said the he and Wiig were “deeply disappointed” that the project was leaked to the press and have decided to “forego the project entirely.”
I love the passive-aggressive marketing on this one. It’s like Ferrell knew exactly that the press will embrace this despite getting lied to directly in the face. “I think we should troll the press on this one.” Well done!
