By Amirose Eisenbach April 4, 2014

Coming off the success of the hilarious sequel "Anchorman 2", now comes word of Will Ferrell's next project. Titled "Match Maker", Ferrell will play a tennis player in the ultimate battle of the sexes.

Steve Conrad, who penned Ben Stiller's "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty", has written the script. Based off of Don Van Natta Jr's ESPN article titled "The Match Maker: Bobby Riggs, the Mafia and the other Battle of the Sexes", it focuses on one of the most legendary tennis matches between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs.

Ferrell will play Riggs and is a known big sports fan, not to mention has dabbled with several roles that already put him in the shoes of other accomplished and hilarious athletes. He will undoubtedly do what Ferrell does best; charm us and make us laugh.
