When Horrible Bosses broke past all expectations to pull in over $200 million at the box office in 2011, the possibility of whether the studio and leading stars would reunite for a sequel was all but set in stone. It was Hollywood 101; strike while the iron is hot to pull to assemble the same creative team and ensure that the money keeps rolling in. For Horrible Bosses 2, though, moviegoers failed to take to Sean Anders’ follow-up – and that’s a feeling Jason Bateman can empathize with.
While appearing on Wtf With Marc Maron, Bateman was candid about the sequel’s shortcomings, and admitted that Horrible Bosses should have adopted a one-and-done strategy, rather than churning out a half-baked sequel just for the sake of it.
“A lot of people saw the first one, but there are plenty of films that made a lot of money where no one is interested in seeing another one. »

The casting earlier today of Zac Efron alongside Dwayne Johnson in the upcoming "Baywatch" movie promises plenty of on-screen beefcake in this big screen take on the popular 1990s series about California beach lifeguards.
One thing that people aren't quite sure on though is the project's tone. Previously it has been described as something akin to the "21 Jump Street" franchise - an action comedy both respectful and playfully sending up its original material. Now comes word from Johnson himself via social media that there's going to be no holding back on the humor as it sounds like the film plans to wear an R rating with pride:
Big News: Welcoming my dude @ZacEfron to #Baywatch. Our movie will be big, fun and Rated R.. Like me when I drink. https://t.co/8DPMJSEG9K

It's Big. Me and bud @ZacEfron been talkin' bout this one for a long time. »

Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief director Seth Gordon has signed on to direct Paramount's movie adaptation of the hit TV series Baywatch, which has Dwayne Johnson set to star. The actor has been attached to the project since October, when, ironically, Horrible Bosses 2 filmmakers Sean Anders and John Morris were set to direct. It is unclear at this point when production may begin, but the studio has been trying to get this project off the ground for many years.
The Baywatch movie has been in the works since July 2009, when Jeremy Garelick signed on to write and direct. A slew of writers have worked on the project between now and then, including Brian Gatewood & Alessandro Tanaka, Peter Tolan and Justin Malen. The writing team of Damian Shannon and Mark Swift wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay, which the studio is moving forward with.

Baywatch is one of those projects that somehow just keeps dangling out of reach of the studio, in this case, Paramount. But the company seems determined to bring the lifeguard story to our screens, and now has Seth Gordon close to a deal to direct Dwayne Johnson in the film. The show, which became famous for its sun-kissed beaches, attractive lifeguards and The Hoff overseeing it all, has been in the works as a movie for a while, with Paramount looking to take it in an even more overtly comedic direction. The likes of Peter Tolan, Robert Ben Garant (who was also rumoured as a director) and, most recently, Justin Malen, have taken cracks at the script, while Horrible Bosses 2 directors Sean Anders were attached until recently.It appears Paramount isn’t straying too far from the Bosses team – Gordon directed the first film back in 2011 and has worked »
With Horrible Bosses 2 directors Sean Anders and John Morris at the helm, Daddy’s Home sees The Other Guys co-stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg put their fantastic chemistry to work yet again as Ferrell’s life with his new wife (Linda Cardellini) and her two kids is upended when their dead beat real dad (Wahlberg), uncomfortable with the idea that his off spring have a new step-dad, enters the picture.

Daddy’s Home Trailer. Sean Anders and John Morris‘s Daddy’s Home (2015) movie trailer stars Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Linda Cardellini, and Paul Scheer. Daddy’s Home‘s plot synopsis: “When a divorced guy’s ex-wife re-marries someone way more uptight, he re-enters her life and wreaks havoc.”
Mark Wahlberg has solidified himself as a viable comedic asset ever since Ted blew up the box-office. He was hysterical at various points in Boogie Nights, but that was a far more successful showcase for his dramatic chops than anything else. Bit parts in things like Date Night helped ramp up his official entry to comedy, and Ted just cemented that ability to transition in and out of it. This is now the second time Wahlberg joins Ferrell in a comedy – the two were in The Other Guys together in 2010.
Daddy’s Home reminds strongly of Step Brothers, though this time, »

Here’s the synopsis:
When a divorced guy’s ex-wife re-marries someone way more uptight, he re-enters her life and wreaks havoc.
Mark Wahlberg is the ‘divorced guy’ making things very difficult for Will Ferrell’s character, who just wants to be a good dad to his step-children. While their chemistry worked in The Other Guys, it’ll be interesting to see how they work together as rivals. But from what the trailer gives us, »

Will Ferrell (who also produces) on the movie’s tone: “In terms of the movies that we’ve produced, we don’t have any problem doing heightened movies that get crazy. But this one is kind of in the zone of Meet the Parents in that it’s pretty relatable in terms of the scenarios and relationships in it. »

While Michael Bay was signed for the first three "Transformers" films, from that point on his involvement is on a 'per film basis'. With the fourth it seemed liked he wouldn't be returning, until a deal was closed that saw him do "Pain & Gain" before going onto "Transformers: Age of Extinction".
Though many are assuming that Bay will return for a fifth entry in the series, that is far from set in stone yet and Bay has several other projects in the works that he could jump to instead. One person who is coming back though is actor Mark Wahlberg and, out doing promotion for "Ted 2," he tells Collider that he thinks Bay will direct it.
Asked if he knows what the status of the film is, he says: "I don’t. Just that Akiva [Goldsman] and those guys are starting to write and break stories, and stuff like that. »

“Daddy’s Home.” the buddy cop film comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell, is joining the Christmas parade. Paramount said Wednesday that it will release the film directed by Sean Anders and John Morris on Christmas Day. The holidays are prime season at the box office and typically crowded, but this year will be particularly busy, in part because Disney is rolling out “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” on Dec. 18, a week before Christmas. “Sisters,” the Tina Fey-Amy Poehler comedy from Universal, will also open that day.
