Will Ferrell in Spanish: Pantelion Films to Distribute "Casa De Mi Padre"

Will Ferrell in "Casa De Mi Padre."

Will Ferrell's Spanish-language comedy, "Casa De Mi Padre," will be distributed in the U.S. next spring by Pantelion Films, a partnership between Lionsgate Entertainment and Grupo Televisa.

Directed by Matt Piedmont, the film stars Ferrell, Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna. Ferrell also produced the film through his Gary Sanchez Prods; NALA Films financed the project.

Billed as an homage to "classic westerns and telenovelas," the March 16, 2012 release will be Pantelion’s widest to date. Here's the plot:

Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father's ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch encounters financial difficulties, Armando's younger brother Raul (Diego Luna) shows up with his new fiancée, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez). It seems that Raul's success as an international businessman means the ranch's troubles are over as he pledges to settle all debts his father has incurred. But when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul's business dealings turn out to be less than legit, all hell breaks loose as they find themselves in a war with Mexico's most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal).

In a statement, Piedmont says, “Our collective knowledge of the Spanish language amounts to what we learned during a half-hour Learning Annex class taken the night before production of the film began. We loved collaborating with NALA to make this movie and now can't wait to have it released.  Pantelion and NALA are the perfect team to get it out there.”

Here's the teaser trailer, which was released in April:

    Hi, Ronnie. Corrected. And all I can say is... there is a very good reason that I made such a clumsy mistake. More to come (although hopefully, not more mistakes).

    You left out who announced that it required the film at the beginning of the third paragraph. This site is in desperate need of some more editors or something.
