If it's a really large area, you might want to rent a drywall sander. Porter Cable makes one - it's a motorized rotary sander using about 12" disks mounted at the end of a lightweight tube which is then connected to a shop vacuum. Using 80 grit disks, you should be able to take off all the high spots. If there are low, then just go over them with a few coats of joint compound, sanding after at least the final coat and paint.
