Actor Will Ferrell will play Ronald Reagan in a movie about the 40th president’s battle with dementia during his second term in office, according to Variety.


According to the report, the film, titled “Reagan,” tells the story of a White House intern who is tasked with making the president think that he is an actor playing the role of the commander-in-chief.

Ferrell is also slated to produce the film, which does not yet have a director.

The “Step Brothers” star has also portrayed former president George W. Bush in a one-man broadway show and on “Saturday Night Live.”
