Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig have made a Lifetime movie: A Deadly Adoption (tagline: The birth of a plan gone wrong). News of the project originally surfaced on April 1st; the very next day, Ferrell released a statement claiming the film had been scrapped due to it no longer being a surprise. Looks like the film is happening (again), based on the large billboard for the project now looking over Hollywood Boulevard.
In the film, Ferrell and Wiig play a couple who care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes) before shenanigans and hijinks occur. The two-hour soapy drama was written by Andrew Steele, who created the bizarro comedy miniseries The Spoils of Babylon for IFC, which also starred Wiig and Ferrell.
