Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell may reteam for comedy Daddy's Home

06.04.2014

For my money, THE OTHER GUYS is one of the funniest movies of the last five years and the best buddy cop movie of the 2000s. Most of that is thanks to the hilarious chemistry between stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. While a sequel to THE OTHER GUYS doesn't look like it is coming any time soon, we may still get a movie that re-teams the duo.

Deadline reports that Wahlberg and Ferrell may star in DADDY'S HOME for HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 directors John Morris and Sean Anders.

DADDY'S HOME casts Ferrell as a mild-mannered radio executive who strives to become the best stepdad ever to his wife’s two children. Complications ensue when their freewheeling, freeloading real father (Wahlberg) arrives, forcing stepdad to compete for the affection of the kids.

The idea of teaming Ferrell and Wahlberg in roles very different than THE OTHER GUYS is reminiscent of Ferrell and John C. Reilly's fluctuating partership in movies like TALLADEGA NIGHTS and STEP BROTHERS. DADDY'S HOME comes from a script by Adam McKay and Etan Cohen. Cohen was originally attached to helm the movie last year when it was set to feature Ferrell and Vince Vaughn in the leads.

I am always a sucker for Will Ferrell movies. Even when they are mediocre, they still tend to make me laugh a lot more than most comedies that are released each year. DADDY'S HOME is on track for production this fall for a likely release in 2015.

The Other Guys surprised me. I'm with Moonrider, I think Mark Wahlberg is cut out more for comedy than anything else. Channing Tatum is similar in that regard.

I love The Other Guys. It's quite funny and even strangely educational. Wahlberg should be in more comedy roles.

The Other Guys was so very shitty, so I don't have much hope for this one if it happens.

Loved The Other Guys and love this news and basically love just about everything Will Ferrell touches. Definitely wish he was playing the loser dad though.

Switcheroo

I'd like to see Ferrell as the freeloader, fun dad. He seems like a better fit for that particular role. Not a big fan of Ferrell as the straight man.

I actually can't wait to see Wahlberg as the comedic freeloader father. They're playing against type.

Definitely up for more comedies from these two. Despite Wahlberg being know his more serious roles, the guy is funny.
