We've seen Will Ferrell show his versatility before, namely in Stranger Than Fiction where he was actually quite effective. He's going to show it again in Everything Must Go, an indie comedy based on a short story by Raymond Carter.
The film is about Nick Halsey (Ferrell), a man who relapses, loses his wife and job before finding himself thrown out of his house and living in the front lawn. He eventually meets a new neighbor (Christopher Jordon Wallace) who may prove to be Nick's return to form.
Yes, you read that correctly. It's Christopher Wallace, son of Notorious B.I.G. and Faith Hill. We first saw him portray his daddy as a young boy a few years ago in the Biggie biopic, Notorious, but he's growing up now and looks to be quite a good actor. Will be nice to see how these two play off each other is this sensitive indie film.
Everything Must Go is adapted and directed by Dan Rush. It debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last year and is slated for a limited release on May 6, and wider on 13th.
