Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell to team up again?


Because their 2010 movie, “The Other Guys,” was a hit, Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are talking about teaming up again. Word from the West Coast is that the pair may be planning to costar in “Daddy’s Home,” a comedy about a mild-mannered executive (Ferrell) who’s trying to be a good stepdad to his wife’s kids but complications — and hilarity — ensue when their freeloading father (Wahlberg) shows up and vies for the kids’ affection. Unclear who will direct, but Sean Anders, whose credits include the truly awful Adam Sandler made-in-Massachusetts movie, “That’s My Boy,” has been mentioned as a possibility.
