Last week we reported that Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg were teaming up once again for the new film ‘Daddy’s Home,’ now Linda Cardellini has also signed-on to join the cast. Paramount Pictures and Red Granite are the studios behind the new comedy, set to release in 2015.
In the film Ferrell will play a run-of-the-mill radio exec, trying to connect with his new wife’s two children from a previous relationship. This is made all the more awkward when the children’s biological father (Wahlberg) suddenly comes back into their lives. Directing the film will be Sean Anders.
THR reported that Cardellini (made famous by her terrific role on Freaks and Geeks and so many other TV series since then) will play the role Farrell’s wife (Wahlberg’s ex) in the film.
