McKay admits that he didn’t reach out to Ferrell before he did. “It was at this weird moment where Will and I weren’t exactly hugging each other, even though there was nothing that terrible and he called Will and said, ‘Hey, McKay just came to me with this,'” McKay recalled. Will was hurt because I hadn’t called him.

CelebHomes News reached Ferrell’s representative for comment but didn’t get a response.

Reilly, meanwhile is neutral and explaining to THRWill is one my closest friends and Adam is my best friend. I am thrilled to have the job, that’s all.

Ferrell and McKay were separated by their decision in October. Ferrell explained that it was due to creative differences. “Adam was like, ‘I want to do this, and this, and this’; he wanted growth and a sphere of influence, and I was just like, ‘I don’t know, that sounds like a lot that I have to keep track of,’ ” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “To me, the potential of seeing a billboard, and being like: ‘Oh, we’re producing that?’ It’s not clear. … At the end of the day, we just have different amounts of bandwidth.”
