Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are going to war.

The “Other Guys” stars are close to re-teaming on “Daddy's Home,” another comedy from Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions that will see the former playing a “mild-mannered radio executive” attempting to impress his new wife's two children – only for their “freeloading, freewheeling” biological father (Wahlberg) to show up and compete for their affection.

“Horrible Bosses” 2 helmers Sean Anders and John Morris are currently in talks to direct from a script by McKay, Chris Henchy, Brian Burns and Etan Cohen (who was attached to direct a previous version of the film co-starring Vince Vaughn).

Directed by McKay, “The Other Guys” grossed more than $220 million worldwide (albeit on a steep $100 million budget) and met with largely positive reviews. Wahlberg will be seen in this summer's blockbuster sequel “Transformers: Age of Extinction” while Ferrell has “Welcome to Me” with Kristen Wiig and “Get Hard” co-starring Kevin Hart in the pipeline.
