Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig are set to work together in an upcoming movie musical based on a book titled “Everything Is Coming Up Profits: The Golden Age of Industrial Musicals.”
The movie will feature a score written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, the musical minds behind Hairspray and Smash, and it will be produced by La La Land‘s Marc Platt.
The book followed “how corporate America employed Broadway talent to take part in industrial shows from the 1950s to the 1980s to help motivate sales forces and educate employees on products,” according to Deadline.
Will Ferrell is dapper in a suit while attending Jhpiego’s Laughter Is The Best Medicine Benefit 2016 held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Monday (May 23) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The 48-year-old actor was joined by Modern Family stars Julie Bowen – Visionary Award honoree – and Ty Burrell, as well as comedian Natasha Leggero at the event held to help prevent the needless deaths of women and families.
The story of Jhpiego is the story of change: by placing resources and skills into the hands of the people, you can change the health of a mother, the future of her children, her community and the world.
