Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are set to team up again for American Football comedy vehicle The Turkey Bowl.

With 2010's The Other Guys, a comedy which saw the pair play mismatched New York cops grossing over $100 million (£62 million), Warner Brothers have signed Ferrell and Wahlberg to play two opposing sports fans who go to war over a Thanksgiving game of touch football.

The script, by 30 Rock producer Robert Carlock and Friends writer Scott Silveri, is reported to have room for a host of cameos. Alec Baldwin, who memorably played Wahlberg's boss in Martin Scorsese's Oscar-winning The Departed is already signed to play his father.

The Turkey Bowl will be another out-and-out comedy for Wahlberg who is currently filming Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane's feature debut, Ted, about a man whose teddy bear comes to life.

Ferrell will soon be seen in Everything Must Go, a comedy/drama based on a short story by Raymond Carver, about a man who sells all his possessions in a yard sale.
