Will Ferrell Drops Out of Ronald Reagan Comedy Movie

Will Ferrell has dropped out of the upcoming movie Reagan, a comedy that will follow the late president Ronald Reagan‘s struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.

The 48-year-old actor was set to star in the movie, but he pulled out after Reagan‘s family criticized the project and urged him not to play the role.

“The REAGAN script is one of a number of scripts that had been submitted to Will Ferrell which he had considered. While it is by no means a ‘Alzheimer’s comedy’ as has been suggested, Mr. Ferrell is not pursuing this project,” a rep for Will told Page Six.

Will Ferrell's Ronald Reagan Comedy Slammed By His Daughter

Will Ferrell will be playing the role of Ronald Reagan in a dark comedy about the late president’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

The movie is set to begin at the start of the “then-president’s second term when he falls into dementia and an ambitious intern is tasked with convincing the commander-in-chief that he is an actor playing the president in a movie,” according to Variety.

Now, Patti Davis, the daughter of Reagan, has written an open letter in which she urges Will to reconsider the movie.

“Perhaps you have managed to retain some ignorance about Alzheimer’s and other versions of dementia. Perhaps if you knew more, you would not find the subject humorous,” she writes. “I watched as fear invaded my father’s eyes—this man who was never afraid of anything. I heard his voice tremble as he stood in the living room and said, ‘I don’t know where I am.’ I watched helplessly as he reached for memories, for words, that were suddenly out of reach and moving farther away. For ten long years he drifted—past the memories that marked his life, past all that was familiar…and mercifully, finally past the fear. There was laughter in those years, but there was never humor.”
