Since no official announcement has been made, we're going to chuck this one into the rumor pile. According to a story in The Pioneer Press, Will Ferrell will begin filming a movie in February that revolves around the American Basketball Association. Say what? Basketball? Will Ferrell?

If the rumor turns out to be true, this would mark Ferrell's fourth sports-related comedy, after previously starring in Kicking and Screaming, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and the upcoming Blades of Glory. Now, I have no idea where this information is coming from -- nothing on IMDB or in the trades -- though, perhaps, this is the third film in Ferrell and Adam Mckay's every man trilogy (Anchorman, Talladega Nights)? Seeing as the two men recently signed a two-year, first-look deal with Paramount Vantage, it all seems to fit together quite nicely. Stay tuned for more information as it's dished out.
