daddyshomecastAfter clearly having a ball on 2010’s action comedy The Other Guys, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg will reunite for Paramount’s Daddy’s Home, which is expected to begin shooting later this year.

Daddy’s Home follows a mild-mannered radio executive (Ferrell) who strives to become the best stepdad to his wife’s two children, but complications ensue when their freewheeling and freeloading real father (Wahlberg) arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids.

Sean Anders (Horrible Bosses 2, That’s My Boy) will direct the screenplay written by Brian Burns, with revision by Anders, John Morris and Etan Cohen, along with contributions from Ferrell’s Gary Sanchez Productions associates Chris Henchy and Adam McKay (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, The Campaign).

Red Granite Pictures will co-produce and co-finance the film, which Paramount Pictures will distribute worldwide. Morris will produce with Ferrell, Henchy and McKay.

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