One of ‘Funny Or Die’s’ most classic sketches will now be turned into a movie for Netflix. If you can recall, Zack Galifianakis for years hosted the series ‘In Between Two Ferns’ which would pair him with several celebrities. Well, yesterday Funny Or Die and Netflix would announce that they will now turn the sketch-interviews into an actual film.
Zach Galifianakis will turn his interview series Between Two Ferns into a movie premiering September 20th on Netflix. The Between Two Ferns movie will feature a fittingly meta and ridiculous plot. The idea is that Will Ferrell discovered Galifianakis’ public access TV show, Between Two Ferns, uploaded it to Funny Or Die and turned the host into a laughing stock. In order to rehab his reputation, Galifianakis decides to take Between Two Ferns on the road to conduct a series of high-profile celebrity interviews. Though Galifianakis and Netflix did not divulge any of the film’s guests, the project’s poster promised that the Between Two Ferns movie would feature “Celebrities you’ve heard of.” Scott Aukerman, the host of Comedy Bang Bang and the co-creator of Between Two Ferns, directed the movie and co-wrote it with Galifianakis.
