Having personally made intelligence seem dispensable when compared to drumming and opera expertise, Step Brothers director Adam McKay has decided it's time he make it clear that education actually is sort of a big deal. He's just made a deal to produce a new documentary to be directed by Jason Pollock that will focus on the drop-out rate in American public schools--a statistic has reportedly risen to over 50% in some major cities that value smoking outside and looking cool over a degree. Making it perfectly clear that this is not going to be a film in which a drop-out Will Ferrell has to return to high school, where he's first bullied but eventually wins prom king, McKay explained his motivations for the project, saying, "I want to help put the education system front and center in this upcoming presidential election. We hope this film will do just that." As such, the film will go into production during the current school year with an eye on screening the film in colleges next fall, ideally pushing students to vote in the next election based on how disappointed they are that this was not the movie about Will Ferrell going back to high school that they thought it would be.
