Interview: Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell And Sean Anders Talk Daddy's Home From The Set

15 June 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

In Sean Anders’ comedy hit Daddy’s Home, Will Ferrell plays Brad, a middle-aged man who is very much in love with his wife (Linda Cardellini) and with the notion of being a responsible family man. He has everything - a good job, a house, a van for the family-, however there’s a small problem: he is not the biological father of his wife’s two kids and, though he tries really hard, the children don’t really care for him (there’s a reason why he appears death or injured in every drawing the daughter makes). Another problem is the fact that the biological dad Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) returns and becomes the uncomfortable guest of the house; aside of being a suave, handsome dude who is admired by...

Making Daddy’s Home, competing against Star Wars and working with Will Ferrell – Sean Anders interview

4 May 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Flickering Myth’s Scott Davis sat down with Sean Anders to talk about Daddy’s Home, out now on Blu-Ray and DVD…

Note: This interview was conducted before the sequel to Daddy’s Home was announced…

Sd: Congratulations on the success of the film – you went up against Star Wars and put up a very good fight. Were you nervous at all opening around the same time considering its huge opening?

Sa: I wouldn’t say nervous, I would say more like terrified – I was kind of driving everybody crazy leading up to the opening just because I knew Star Wars was going to be huge, I was excited for Star Wars. So we just had no idea how we were going to bid into that crazy market but it worked out great and we’re obviously thrilled.

Are you surprised at the huge success the film had at the box office? »

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.

More on Daddy’s Home 2 as we hear it…

But his plans turn upside down when the biological father, Dusty Mayron, played by Mark Wahlberg returns.

A sequel to the film was announced on Friday with the original movie’s director Sean Anders returning to helm. We caught up with him to talk about his film.

You wrote, as well as directed Daddy’s Home – where did your idea for the film come from?

Sean Anders: Well it started with a writer named Brian Burns who was loosely basing it on some of his own experiences of being a step-dad and the script went through a couple of iterations before it got to us and then when John »

Will Ferrell And Mark Wahlberg Prep For Round 2 As Daddy’s Home Sequel Gets Go-Ahead

22 April 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paramount is pushing ahead with Daddy’s Home 2, bringing together the entire dysfunctional family that helped fire the original comedy to a relatively healthy box office haul – to the tune of $240 million, no less.

Of those family members on board for the sequel are director Sean Anders (Horrible Bosses 2, Mean Moms) and perhaps most important of all, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. Yes, Paramount’s two warring patriarchs are ready for round two, and the studio will be hoping to build another comedic crowd-pleaser on the pair’s undeniable chemistry.

No details were disclosed regarding the story, but we do know that John Morris will once again take point for scripting duties. Further still, Paramount didn’t allude to the chances of Hannibal Buress, Linda Cardelini and/or Thomas Haden Church reprising their roles from Daddy’s Home, though expect more details to arise as the comedy sequel inches closer to a production start. »

'Daddy's Home' Sequel in the Works

22 April 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

If you were one of the $240 million worth of audience members to see last year's Daddy's Home -- and you enjoyed the flick -- then you're in luck, as it looks like Paramount is set to make a sequel to the successful comedy. According to Deadline, both Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have signed on to reprise their roles as Brad Whitaker and Dusty Mayron, respectively.

But the leading star talent are the only ones returning for this sequel. Also heading back for a second helping are co-writers John Morris and Sean Anders, the latter of whom will also be returning to the director's chair.

Given the premise of the first film, it's hard to imagine the writers would be able to repeat the same formula. As such, one has to wonder where they'll take things in the next film. Unfortunately for us, the logline and premise of the film are currently under wraps, »

Will Ferrell & Mark Wahlberg Reteam For 'Daddy's Home' Sequel

22 April 2016 8:56 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Released a week after "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," you probably weren't paying attention to Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg's "Daddy's Home," but Paramount's counter-programming comedy was a smart move by the studio. The film quietly amassed a staggering $150 million domestic, some career-best numbers for both actors, and it picked up an additional $90 million overseas. And now, the studio wants more.

Real-Life Sports Drama The Fixer Taps Jennifer Aniston For Title Role

1 February 2016 8:42 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In recent times, light-hearted comedies such as We’re the Millers and Horrible Bosses have emphasized Jennifer Aniston’s more comedic side, though there’s no question that the former Friends actress has captured our attention with a turn in Daniel Barnz’s acclaimed and melancholic drama, Cake.

And while we don’t expect Aniston’s latest role to venture quite so far into the human psyche, the actress will soon be calling upon her dramatic chops once more for 20th Century Fox’s real-life sports drama, The Fixer. Deadline has learned that Aniston has sealed a deal to topline the feature as Denise White, a real-life Miss USA contestant who became one of the best sports managers in the business when she closed the book on her time as a beauty model. As White’s career evolved, though, she developed a knack for shielding clients and their public image »

Film Review: Daddy's Home

3 January 2016 2:56 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ An actor who has made something of a fruitful living repurposing his wide-eyed brand of comedy to a string of one-note premises, Will Ferrell makes his second appearance this year (after the blatantly racist Get Hard) with Daddy's Home (2015), a thinly-veiled attempt at recapturing the success of his previous collaboration with co-star Mark Wahlberg. Directed by Sean Anders, the film goes out of its way to contrive its central masculinity crises in ways that quickly settle for lame, lowest common denominator jokes.
