Everyone's favorite Will Ferrell-Mark Wahlberg comedy that isn't the good one is getting a sequel. According to Deadline, Paramount and Gary Sanchez Productions have put into development a follow-up to Daddy's Home, the tepid sibling of the tragically sequel-less The Other Guys. Ferrell and Wahlberg are already signed to reprise their paternal parts, and Sean Anders is set to again direct and co-write with John Morris.
Those wondering why this is happening can, as usual, check the surprising numbers: Daddy's Home somehow became Ferrell's biggest starring role ever internationally and second-biggest domestically, grossing $240 million worldwide. Also, in fairness, the original did sort of set up a sequel that would see John Cena take over the antagonist role, and we don't want to upset John Cena. His arms are basically gorilla limbs not crushing us purely because we keep him placated.
