Paramount, Red Granite Pictures and Gary Sanchez are reteaming Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in Daddy’s Home. Sean Anders directs a script by Brian Burns. Ferrell plays a mild-mannered radio executive 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. This is a story that Deadline broke earlier this year. Like many non superhero pictures that get made by studios, these things become real when a co-financier steps up and that is what has happened as Dumber And Dumber To backers Red Granite are starting to get more aggressive. The film looked like it was going to happen last year with Vince Vaughn and Ferrell, and Etan Cohen directing. That fell apart, and then in June this configuration took shape, and now it’s a reality.
