So, here's the deal. News broke on April Fools' Day that former "SNL" and "Anchorman 2" co-stars Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig had secretly filmed a Lifetime movie called "A Deadly Adoption" that parodies other Lifetime movies.
When that news leaked, Ferrell and Wiig exclusively released a statement to Entertainment Weekly that they were "deeply disappointed that our planned top secret project was made public."
Ferrell said, “Kristen and I have decided it is in the best interest for everyone to forego the project entirely, and we thank Lifetime and all the people who were ready to help us make this film.”
