Madden Film Release Date
The film is still in the early stages of development, but it is expected to begin production in 2023. There is no release date set for the film yet. It is still too early to say exactly what to expect from the film, but it is likely to be a look at Madden’s life and career. Ferrell is known for his physical comedy and his ability to play larger-than-life characters, so he should be a good fit for the role of Madden. McKay is also known for his comedic films, so he should be able to balance the humor with the more serious moments of Madden’s life.
