LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) “Between Two Ferns,” Funny Or Die’s bitter and deliberately under-prepared talk show hosted by comedian Zach Galifianakis, is heading to the small screen for a full-length movie on Netflix.
“Between Two Ferns: The Movie” is set to premiere on the streaming service Sept. 20. It is not expected to be an extended version of the talk show but rather an expose on the host.
“Zach Galifianakis dreamed of becoming a star. But when Will Ferrell discovered his public access TV show ‘Between Two Ferns’ and uploaded it to Funny Or Die, Zach became a viral laughing stock,” Netflix said in a statement. “Now Zach and his crew are taking a road trip to complete a series of high-profile celebrity interviews and restore his reputation. Directed by Scott Aukerman, Between Two Ferns: The Movie is a laugh-out-loud comedy that gives new insight into the curmudgeonly, beloved outsider Zach Galifianakis has created over the years.”
The feature is expected to include “celebrities you’ve heard of.” Reports say that could include David Letterman, Peter Dinklage, Keanu Reeves, Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper.
