Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg To Once Again Yell at Each Other for Comedy

June 5, 2014


Paramount is looking to get Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell back together, as if they can just buy the same ingredients Adam McKay used and throw together a restaurant-quality meal like The Other Guys. Deadline reports that the studio is in talks to bring Wahlberg in on Daddy's Home, a comedy Ferrell has long been connected to. Vince Vaughn was once attached to the Wahlberg role, and Etan Cohen was last year going to direct; now Horrible Bosses 2's Sean Anders and John Morris are said to be in talks to fill in. Ferrell will play "a mild-mannered radio executive who strives to become the best stepdad ever to his wife's two children." Wahlberg is the freeloading, absentee dad who suddenly shows up to complicate things--quickly winning the kids back over, no doubt. He did, after all, buy a Transformer.
