Will Ferrell is set to star in the comedy Eurovision for Netflix.

He will also co-write the feature with Saturday Night Live alum Andrew Steele, having recently worked together on HBO's The Royal Wedding Live With Cord and Tish!

The Eurovision Song Contest, which was started in post-World War II Europe, is the longest-running annual international song competition. Participating countries submit an original song to be performed live, after which votes are cast by official juries and viewers to determine the winner.

Jessica Elbaum will produce the pic for Gary Sanchez Productions alongside Ferrell, with Adam McKay executive producing.

Ferrell produced the recent Netflix comedy release Ibiza, starring Gillian Jacobs, and will next be seen onscreen opposite John C. Reilly in the Columbia comedy Holmes & Watson.
