Mark Wahlberg has signed on to star in New Line Cinema's buddy cop comedy Partners. The actor is no stranger to the genre, having starred in 2010's unconventional cop movie, The Other Guys, but this project is said to turn the genre on its ear. There will be no "bromance" between these cops in Partners, but quite the opposite.
The story centers on an Lapd detective (Mark Wahlberg) who has a one-night stand with a beautiful woman. He soon discovers that this woman is actually a high-ranking FBI agent, who is his new boss on a high-profile case. The project has been compared to the 2005 action thriller blockbuster Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Partners is set to feature a number of huge action set pieces.
Mark Wahlberg will star as a Los Angeles Police Department detective in New Line’s action-comedy “Partners.”
Leverage Entertainment’s Stephen Levinson will produce. The script, written by Evan Turner, centers on a detective becoming romantically involved with a woman after a one-night stand, then discovering that she’s an FBI agent in charge of a high-profile case to which he’s been assigned.
Wahlberg starred as a detective with Will Ferrell in Warner’s 2010 comedy “The Other Guys.” He was last seen in “Ted 2” and will appear with Ferrell in Paramount’s “Daddy’s Home,” which opens on Christmas. He’s been shooting Lionsgate’s “Deepwater Horizon” with Peter Berg directing.
Wahlberg is repped by Wme, Leverage Management and Sloane Offer. Turner is repped by Wme and Underground. »

Mark Wahlberg already has some experience with the buddy cop genre, having previously starred alongside Will Ferrell in Adam McKay's fantastic action-comedy The Other Guys. Well, now he's ready to head back to the formula, as he has just signed on to Partners - a buddy cop comedy movie with a bit of a gender twist. Deadline has the scoop on this developing project, noting that it's in development over at New Line, and is based on a script by Evan Lerner - a first time screenwriter whose only credits to date are as a producer on Journey To The Center of the Earth and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Rather than pairing Mark Wahlberg with another male partner, the movie will instead put a female cop by the Ted star's side solving a case. According to the report, Mark Wahlberg will star in Partners as an Lapd detective »
Mark Wahlberg has occasionally found himself in the buddy comedy genre, including for films such as Ted and The Other Guys. Partners sees him returning to that format, but with something of a twist, albeit one that you’d think would’ve been figured out before now.Partners, which has a script by Evan Turner and the backing of New Line, finds Wahlberg as an Lapd detective who has a one night stand with a woman, and falls for her. Then he learns she’s an FBI agent and, to complicate matters, will be his boss on a high profile case. According to Deadline’s report, the studio sees this one as sitting squarely in the Mr. & Mrs. Smith arena, with a lot of big action set pieces. And, hopefully, with a decent co-starring role for an actress.There’s no word on when this might arrive on screens as »
How many Mark Wahlbergs are there? I ask because I like the guy who showed up in this week's "Ted 2." I like goofball Mark Wahlberg. I like belligerent Boston Mark Wahlberg. I like dancing silly Mark Wahlberg. I like dim bulb but well-meaning Mark Wahlberg. I do not, however, care for "I'm smarter than I look" Mark Wahlberg. I do not like humorless Mark Wahlberg. I do not particularly care for serious action mode Mark Wahlberg. And when I look at the ones I don't like side-by-side with the ones I like, I find it hard to reconcile that this is all one person. So again… I ask… how many Mark Wahlbergs are there? When Paul Thomas Anderson's "Boogie Nights" was released, it was a breakthrough for the young actor, part of a banner year in his nascent acting career. He had made a few films before that, including »

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. There is a lot of good will coming off the pairs excellent work together in The Other Guys that will surely help Daddy’s Home, but from what we see from the above trailer, there is a solid comedy here, and the two leads, especially Wahlberg do seem to be having a lot of fun. Released: 25th December (U.S)/ 26th December (Irl/U.K.) »

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, »

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, »

Directed by Sean Anders, Daddy’S Home follows a mild-mannered radio executive (Ferrell) 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.
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. »

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg played a pair of mismatched cops in the 2010 action-comedy The Other Guys. This December, the actors will once again join forces in the upcoming film Daddy's Home.

Just when it looks as if a bond is forming in this new family, all hell breaks loose when the children's much cooler biological dad (Wahlberg) turns up for a visit.
The stakes continue to rise as both men compete in the ultimate battle for fatherly supremacy.
Daddy’s Home stars Ferrell as the stepfather to Linda Cardellini’s two young children, who just won’t accept him as being nearly as capable as their own father. Ferrell’s The Other Guys co-star Mark Wahlberg stars as the biological father whose sudden return to the children’s lives finds the two father figures competing for attention.
With Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, we obviously expect their attempts to one-up each other to be hilarious, and based on the trailer they don’t disappoint. In the war for kids’ affection, Ferrell and Wahlberg learn that pony beats out puppy, and cash beats out tickles. We can’t wait to see what other outrageous attempts are made to outdo one another.
Daddy’s Home also stars Thomas Haden Church, »

The fathers wind up competing for the affection of children, culminating in a scene where Wahlberg’s character has scored courtside seats for a Lakers game. The trailer includes footage that’s already gone viral of Ferrell hitting a cheerleader (played by Taryn Terrell) in the face with a basketball.
