Two New Poster of Will Ferrell & Zach Galifianakis in The Campaign

The CampaignAre you ready for the real election? Yahoo! Movies has released these two new posters for Jay Roach‘s upcoming political-comedy ‘The Campaign.’  Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell are throwing their hats into the electoral ring. The pair star in the Jay Roach-directed comedy The Campaign, with Ferrell playing a sitting congressman who makes a costly public gaffe and Galifianakis as (this may be obvious), a dimwitted local who gets conned into running for office by a bevy of scheming corporate CEOs.


The director Jay Roach who has moved from comedies like Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and Meet the Parents to HBO’s political dramas like Recount and Game Change is combining his experience for The Campaign, written by Chris Henchy (The Other Guys) and Shawn Harwell (“Eastbound & Down”).

Here’s the Official synopsis of The Campaign

When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: naïve Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors’ support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family’s political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about. As Election Day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other, in this mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking comedy from “Meet the Parents” director Jay Roach that takes today’s political circus to its logical next level. Because even when you think campaign ethics have hit rock bottom, there’s room to dig a whole lot deeper.
