Daddy’s Home 2 in the works

Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are returning for Daddy’s Home 2…

Whilst Star Wars: The Force Awakens was taking lots of money last Christmas, so another movie was quietly mopping up a few quid of its own. Daddy’s Home, starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell in the lead roles, earned $240m worldwide pretty much without anyone noticing. Well, scrub that: Paramount Pictures noticed, and it’s ordering a sequel.

Daddy’s Home 2 will see both Wahlberg and Ferrell return in the lead roles, with Sean Anders and John Morris back to pen the screenplay. Furthermore, Sean Anders is directing again as well.

It’s unclear as of yet whether Linda Cardellini, Thomas Haden Church and Hannibal Buress will be returning too. But the chances of that, we suggest, are quite high.
