Funny or Die founder and all around Will Ferrell comedy buddy Adam McKay is plotting to make Will hilarious again. I know, it may seem like awhile since you last laughed at a Will Ferrell movie, but that’s only because you underappreciated Step-Brothers, their 2008 outing together. Or maybe you saw Land of the Lost which, granted, seemed like it went on forever and ever. But McKay and Ferrell are together again and you can bet your bottom dollar it’ll result in laughter-induced vomiting.

The movie is called The Other Guys and both Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have been on board to star for awhile. Now THR says Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton, and Damon Wayans Jr. have been added into the mix. Actually is there anyone in this movie who isn’t in need of a career reboot? Things have gotten so bad for Keaton that THR didn’t even bother to list him in their headline, opting to go with Eva Mendes (hot off one of the biggest superhero flops of all time no less) instead. Michael Keaton was Batman! Things for Mr. Mom have really gotten bad.

The Other Guys is an action comedy in which Ferrell and Wahlberg play cops. If he’s smart, McKay will write a hilarious scene in which Wahlberg mistakes a potted plant for an informant, and only discovers his error after a thorough questioning. Come on Adam, let’s make that scene happen. No word yet on what part the three newcomers will play in the film, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and predict that Michael Keaton plays the plant. Seriously, his career is really in the shit.
