You may not want to remember it that well (or want to), but Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg brought their Other Guys odd-pairing back together for the 2015 holiday season movie, Daddy's Home.
The film followed Ferrell as good-natured suburban step-dad Brad Whitaker, who must compete for his stepchildren's affections when their macho-man biological father Dusty (Wahlberg) shows back up. Now we're hearing that the Daddy's Home sequel could be moving ahead with two very big stars joining the cast.
Deadline reports that Mel Gibson and John Lithgow have both been offered roles in the Daddy's Home sequel - though no word on who either actor would play. The report notes that Gibson's recent success with Hacksaw Ridge and Lithgow's success on the Netflix series The Crown are both responsible for the actors getting this new offer.
It's not hard to surmise that Gibson and Lithgow would join the franchise playing fathers of the characters from the first film, meeting for the first time and striking up a hilarious competition. Initial guess would be Gibson playing Wahlberg's badass dad while Lithgow plays Ferrell uptight snobby father - but any twist on that expectation would be almost more fun.
No word on when Daddy's Home 2 would begin production, but we'll inform you if Gibson and Lithgow sign on.
