Some say that Will Ferrell
movies are just the same flick over and over again, but since I always get a giggle from them, I really can't complain. Movieweb is now hosting 10 new photos
from Ferrell's latest sports-comedy, Semi-Pro
. Farrell plays Jackie Moon, the owner and coach of the American Basketball Association's Flint Michigan Tropics. In hopes of getting the team status in a little organization called the NBA, he must turn his team into winners. Semi-Pro
was written by Scot Armstrong, who was also behind Road Trip
, Old School
, and The Heartbreak Kid
. Armstrong is also hard at work on the sequel to Old School
, but this time it will be without *
Hank 'The Tank'
by the looks of things. Even if you are not a big fan of Ferrell's particular style of comedy, you have to admit he does manage to put together some pretty great comedy casts. Joining Ferrell on Semi-Pro
are Woody Harrelson
, Will Arnett
, Rob Corddry
, and the criminally underused Andy Richter
. Also joining in on the fun are Outkast's Andre Benjamin and Maura Tierney.
So while some of these pictures have already been released
back in November, this latest set has a few new images plus your chance to get a look at Ferrell's 'fro in hi-res. So far, there have already been a few poster
releases, a teaser
, and the ever-popular "red band" trailer
. But, let's be truthful here, if you are a Ferrell fan you are going to want to jump straight to the 'R' trailer for all the good jokes. Semi-Pro
opens in theaters on February 29th.*Correction: Ferrell will forever by haunted by the nickname Frank "the Tank", not Hank.
