According to TheWrap.com, comedy legend Dan Aykroyd has a new project in the works. The actor is said to be joining forces with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis for an upcoming comedy.
The funnymen have signed on to political parody flick “Dog Fight,” penned by “Eastbound & Down” writer Shawn Harwell. Galifianakis, Ferrell and Aykroyd will be starring and producing, along with Ferrell's pal Adam McKay.
Jay Roach is directing the movie, which has Ferrell and Galifianakis portraying bumbling politicians fighting for a congressional seat in North Carolina. Aykroyd's role hasn’t been announced yet.
Hopefully, Will Ferrell will be able to put his hilarious George W. Bush impersonation to use.
The film is slated for release in August, 2012.
