Paramount has set a sequel to the Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg comedy Daddy's Home.

The duo will be reprising their roles in the Gary Sanchez production, with Sean Anders and John Morris returning to write the script and Anders coming back to the director's chair.

Daddy's Home grossed $240 million at the international box office.

Next up, Wahlberg will be in the natural-disaster film Deepwater Horizon and is set to reprise his role as Cade Yeager in Michael Bay's Transformers 5. Ferrell recently could be seen in Zoolander 2 and is attached to star in an untitled comedy from Neighbors co-writer Brendan O’Brien, for which Universal just paid seven figures.

Ferrell is repped by UTA and Mosaic. Wahlberg is repped by WME and Leverage.
