UPDATE: Will Ferrell Backs Out Of Reagan Comedy That Pokes Fun At Dementia

UPDATE: After receiving a mountain of negative backlash over portraying former President Reagan in a comedy, Will Ferrell has officially backed out of the project.

The film, which was to be titled Reagan, focused on the former commander-in-chief’s later years in office when he began battling Alzheimer’s.

A spokesperson discussing the decision said, “While Reagan is by no means an ‘Alzheimer’s comedy’ as has been suggested, Mr. Ferrell is not pursuing this project.”

We’re sure the backlash, including a letter from Reagan’s daughter pleading with Ferrell to get a better understanding of dementia, had nothing to do with Ferrell’s decision.
