Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell had a big success with The Other Guys, and while there’s been talk of a sequel it’s never come off. However it seems they want to work together as they are is in talks to reunite for the Paramount comedy Daddy’s Home, according to Deadline.
Last year Ferrell was due to star opposite Vince Vaughn in the film, with Etan Cohen set to direct. However that never came together and so Mark Wahlberg has stepped in. The film is about a mild-mannered radio executive played by Ferrell, who wants to be the best stepfather he can be to his wife’s children. However, this gets complicated when their deadbeat biological father (Wahlberg) returns and forces Ferrell to fight for the kids’ affection.
Sean Anders and John Morris are in talks to direct from a screenplay by Brian Burns, Chris Henchy, Adam McKay and Etan Cohen. It’s not clear when it will go into production.
