mild-mannered radio executive who strives to be the world’s greatest stepfather. A wrench is thrown in his plans when the freeloading dad (Vaughn) of his wife’s two children comes back into their lives, and forces Ferrell’s character to compete for the kids’ affection.
The film was written by Brian Burns and Adam McKay & Chris Henchy and Cohen. Ferrell and McKay will produce with Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane through Good Universe, whose Matt Leonetti and Spencer Wong will co-produce. Gary Sanchez’s Henchy and Jessica Elbaum will executive produce.
