Can you imagine funny guy Will Ferrell slaving over a stove inspiring kids to eat healthier? Well, if rumors in Hollywood are true the comedian will incarnate celebrity chef Jamie Oliver on the big screen.

The upcoming comedy by Paramount  is titled Food Fight and will be produced by Ryan Seacrest. The film is loosely based on Jamie's show The Food Revolution, in which he attempts to reform school lunches in Los Angeles.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film will be about a British chef who owns a food truck and is forced to work with school children after he gets in trouble with the law. Will Ferrell has not been confirmed as the lead role just yet. Eater reports that  Sean William Scott is also in the running to play Jamie Oliver.
