It turns out Will Ferrell won't play a dementia-stricken Ronald Reagan in a comedy that caused a stir once news of its plot broke.
"The ‘Reagan’ script is one of a number of scripts that had been submitted to Will Ferrell which he had considered," the actor's rep told FOXNews.com. "While it is by no means an ‘Alzheimer’s comedy’ as has been suggested, Mr. Ferrell is not pursuing this project."
It was widely reported on Wednesday that Ferrell was set to star in the film, written by Mike Rosolio. Many were distraught over the idea of the comedy.
