When last we spoke about the project titled Daddy’s Home, it had Will Ferrell set to star opposite Vince Vaughn with Etan Cohen directing.  A fair amount has changed in the last year, since now word has it that Ferrell will reunite with The Other Guys’ co-star Mark Wahlberg, and that Sean Anders and John Morris are in talks to direct.  The Gary Sanchez production was originally scripted by Brian Burns, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy with Cohen, and is scheduled to begin production this fall.  Hit the jump for more on the plot.

will-ferrell-mark-wahlberg-daddys-homeDeadline reports that Paramount is looking to reunite Ferrell and Wahlberg in Daddy’s Home.  The plot sees “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 the stepdad to compete for the affection of the kids.”

Wahlberg has Transformers: Age of Extinction opening later this summer and next stars in Rupert Wyatt’s crime thriller, The Gambler.  Ferrell is filming the comedy Get Hard for director Cohen, and recently completed work on Shira Piven’s dramedy Welcome to Me.  Anders and Morris recently teamed up to write We’re the Millers, and also supplied the pen behind Horrible Bosses 2, which Anders directed.
