Will Ferrell has been confirmed to star in 'Flamingo Thief,' which writer Michael LeSieur ('You, Me and Dupree') will adapt from the novel by Susan Trott.

In the new flick, Ferrell will star as Tim Forrester, a lawyer who becomes obsessed with stealing flamingo figurines after his wife leaves him.

Variety reports that Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld will produce, but no director has been confirmed for the project yet, but it's understood the producers have already commenced their search.

LeSieur's script appeared on the 2011 Black List event, which Ferrell previously headlined in 2008 for Dan Rush's script 'Everything Must Go.'

Ferrell next appears in the Spanish-language comedy 'Casa de mi Padre,' and he also stars opposite Zach Galifianakis in Jay Roach's political comedy 'Dog Fight.'

Wearing his producing hat, Ferrell recently produced 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters,' as well as the Sundance pics 'Bachelorette' and Tim and Eric's 'Billion Dollar Movie,' which he also co-stars in.
