You might have been able to guess that a feature length adaptation of Between Two Ferns would probably have to pull back the curtain (even though the series is premised on that already) a little more.
Turns out that this Netflix movie version will have Zach Galifianakis still doing interviews of high profile celebrities, though doing them on the road as a way to show Will Ferrell that he is actual a good interviewer and not the sort of “best/worst” sort of interviewer that has made Between Two Ferns one of the most beloved, long running web series on the Internet. Also, Gaul, Lapkus, and Linayao being smarty added as the crew is another intriguing wrinkle that really has us pondering just how meta this film will get.
We’re curious to see if this premise means that Zach, for a bit, does legitimately try to interview his guests well, but, because of his reputation in the Between Two Ferns universe, it all still goes awry. We’ll find out not too long from now on the film’s release date on Netflix, Sept. 20th.
