LOS ANGELES, June 2 (UPI) -- David Mamet
will direct Will Ferrell
in the upcoming feature "Joan of Bark: the Dog that Saved France," Daily Variety reported Wednesday.
Mamet also wrote the screenplay, described as a contemporary satire about pop culture. Mamet's screen credits include "Hannibal," "Glengarry Glen Ross" and "The Untouchables."
Ferrell, a former "Saturday Night Live" cast member who scored his biggest box-office hit last year in "Elf," is due in theaters this summer in the '70s comedy "Anchor Man."
