The next Will Ferrell movie doesn't even have Will Ferrell in it. The Foot Fist Way is a Ferrell production, because he and Adam McKay picked it up for distribution.

Will Ferrell Preaches The Foot Fist Way

"Somehow it was one of those films that kinda didn’t get picked up for whatever reason and we were like, 'How did this not get distributed?' We'd just started Gary Sanchez. It was kind of the perfect thing for us to be our first film to be involved with."

Having Ferrell as a distributor means even distribution is a funny story. "I first saw it in my hotel room when I was shooting Blades of Glory in Montreal. I immediately urinated on myself which has never happen to me watching a film before. So my first reaction was I have a medical problem. So I went through a series of tests. I went to Scripps Institute for a battery of tests. Psychology, physical, checking your urine, bladder, a weightless chamber. All these things. I was like this is way too much. I feel like this is overkill. Turns out I was perfectly fine. I continued watching the film."

The film opens in limited release, but Ferrell is aiming high. "You know, we have very appropriate, moderate expectations for this film. We're just looking for like an $80 million opening weekend. Nothing big. Maybe $300 million overseas."

The Foot Fist Way opens to theaters May 30th.
