Comedy giants Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler will star opposite each other in the lead roles in a movie for the first time ever in the upcoming The House, according to Variety

The movie, which already sounds great, has Ferrell and Poehler as a husband and wife who open up an illegal casino in their basement after blowing their kid's college fund. 

The last time Ferrell and Poehler were in a movie together was 2007's Blades of Glory, in which they played rival figure skaters (with Poehler in a smaller supporting role).

Ferrell's final season on Saturday Night Live, 2001-2002, was Poehler's first season on the show, though they only appeared in two sketches together

Here's a taste of what their chemistry was like back then: 



The script for The House was written Andrew J. Cohen and  Brendan O’Brien, who wrote Neighbors. It will be interesting to see how the Ferrell-Poehler collabo stacks up to the Ferrell-Kristen Wiig team-up movie that's coming to Lifetime pretty soon.
