Comedic actor reaches out to Latino audiences

Will Ferrell to Star in Spanish Speaking Role ‘Casa de Mi Padre’

Comedy actor Will Ferrell will be starring in a new movie being filmed in Spanish, including all his lines, with English subtitles.  Entitled “Casa de Mi Padre” (House of My Father), the film takes a swipe on both Telenovelas and the drug problems now confronting many South American countries.  Ferrell plays a common rancher named Armando who goes against a powerful drug lord (Mexican award winning actor Gael Garcia Bernal) for the love of a woman.  The film is produced by Gary Sanchez Productions and is being directed by Matt Piedmont.  

Will it work in both markets?  You be the judge - check out the trailer:
