Will Ferrell’s new drama “Everything Must Go” heading to Toronto

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Is Will Ferrell’s next film, “Everything Must Go,” on its way to the Toronto International Film Festival?

It would appear so, though the fest has yet to confirm. Though when the actor appeared on “The Charlie Rose Show” in support of Adam McKay’s new comedy, “The Other Guys,” Ferrell indeed let it slip that “Go” just got in to TIFF, so we’ve moved it onto our festival radar.

“I just did a movie that just got into the Toronto International Film Festival,” Ferrell told Rose. “(It’s called) ‘Everything Must Go.’ It’s based on a Raymond Carver short story, and it is actually what you would call a radical departure (for me). But yeah, I am playing an alcoholic. It’s a great small story about a guy who comes home. His wife has left him, and (he) finds all of his personal possessions on his front lawn. He’s locked out of his house, (so) he proceeds to have a yard sale for five days.”

The picture was adapted and directed by first-timer Dan Rush. IMDB lists Rebecca Hall as Ferrell’s co-star. We don’t know too much about “Go,” and as mentioned, TIFF hasn’t confirmed “Go” for its slate.

But we’re certainly intrigued, and hoping Ferrell knows what he’s talking about so we can check out this small film at next month’s festival.
