Finally! A Will Ferrell project being promoted that doesn’t involve a red suit and full mustache! IFC is pushing out promos to promote its launch of “the greatest telepic never released” next month. The producers at Funny or Die have released an eight-minute mockumentary video chronicling the making of The Spoils of Babylon, which lauds a cast including Tobey Maguire, Kristen Wiig, Jessica Alba, Haley Joel Osment and the one-and-only Will Ferrell. The spoof documentary shows how the 1978 film (which, in the real world, is a 2014 mini-series on IFC) was a catastrophe due to the incompetence of fictional director Eric Jonrosh (Ferrell). Check out the short version of this film within a film was a disaster before watching The Spoils of Babylon on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 10 pm EST.
