Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig Get Deathly Serious in Lifetime’s ‘Deadly Adoption’ Trailer
Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig’s forthcoming Lifetime movie A Deadly Adoption has had a winding road to completion, first leaking to the press, then (jokingly?) canceled over the report, then back on. Now, there’s no stopping A Deadly Adoption (or a speeding truck) as Lifetime releases the first dramatic footage.
Set to premiere on Saturday, June 20, A Deadly Adoption sees Ferrell and Wiig in spoof mode for a “campy and fun and a contemporary wink at the genre” in celebration of Lifetime’s 25 years making original movies. The movie stars the two SNL alum as a well-to-do couple who offer their home to a young pregnant woman (90210 star Jessica Lowndes), hoping to, you guessed it, adopt her child.
Both Ferrell and frequent film partner Adam McKay produced A Deadly Adoption under the Gary Sanchez banner, directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg and written by The Spoils of Babylon scribe Andrew Steele.
Steel(e) your nerves against the dramatic first trailer for A Deadly Adoption above, and prepare for two full hours of it on June 20.
