New Line has picked up the rights to a comedy pitch called Tag, with Will Ferrell and Jack Black attached to star. The treatment is based on a Wall Street Journal article titled “Tag Brothers” and featured ten prep school classmates who reunite in their forties to play an elaborate game of tag for one month. The Hollywood Reporter reports Mark Steilen is attached to write the script, so the film is a long ways off from being officially greenlit. One also begins to wonder who else might be in the ensemble of ten tag players…

The Hollywood Reporter article amusingly indicates that Ferrell and Black haven’t worked together since Black’s cameo in Anchorman. But the pair have appeared together in numerous places more recently (this may not be a complete list, sue me).
