Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell to reunite for Daddy's Home

The Other Guys

Story by Jack Foley

WILL Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are to reunite for new comedy Daddy’s Home.

The story will follow a mild-mannered radio executive (to be played by Ferrell) who strives to become the best step-dad to his wife’s two children. Complications ensue when their free-wheeling and free-loading real father (Wahlberg) arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids.

Sean Anders (Horrible Bosses 2) will direct from a screenplay by Brian Burns (Blue Bloods, Entourage).

Ferrell and Wahlberg last worked together on the hit action comedy The Other Guys.

Adam Goodman, President of distributor Paramount Film Group said: “Will and Mark are the absolute perfect on-screen duo to take on this hilarious project. With Anders at the helm, and our partners Red Granite on-board, we are thrilled this movie is getting underway.”

Riza Aziz, Co-Chairman of Red Granite Pictures, added: “We’re particularly excited not only to reunite with the wonderful Paramount team but to collaborate again with the comical genius of Sean Anders and John Morris, who we had the pleasure of working with on Dumb and Dumber To. And we are thrilled to partner with Will, Mark and Gary Sanchez. We look forward to an inspiring, hilarious adventure.”
