Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig had been working on a top-secret movie that would air on Lifetime, but once news leaked, Ferrell told Entertainment Weekly in April that the project had been scrapped.
A giant billboard in Hollywood appears to differ, showing a poster for A Deadly Adoption starring the two comedic actors in a campy, fun, what-you’d-expect-from-Lifetime movie that’s set to air later this month. In the film, Ferrell and Wiig play a successful couple who house a pregnant woman with the intention of adopting her baby, that is until things get out of hand.
Ferrell has mentioned his affinity for Lifetime films, and his desire to make one. It appears he finally has his opportunity.
The film is scheduled to air on Lifetime on Sunday June 20th.
