Will Ferrell has signed on to star in the independent film ‘Everything Must Go’. The film is being written and directed by Dan Rush and will be his first feature.
‘Everything Must Go’ is based on a story by the late Raymond Carver. The film is about a man who loses his job and then finds his wife has kicked him out and tossed all his stuff on the front lawn. His response to this is to have a yard sale.
Raymond Carver was a prominent short story writer whose work provided the source material for Robert Altman’s Short Cuts. This short story was previously filmed as a short film title ‘Everything Goes’ in 2004 starring Hugo Weaving.
