Vince Vaughn has a fairly busy schedule – with less than a month to go before The Internship release, he signed on to the Etan Cohen film, Daddy’s Home.
The new comedy that already has Will Ferrell attached to star will be Cohen’s directorial debut. Etan, not Oscar-winning dark comedy filmmaker Ethan Cohen, screenwriting credits include Idiocracy, Tropic Thunder, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, and, most recently, Men in Black 3.
Therefore, Vaughn is set to join Old School co-star Ferrell (also great comedic rivals in Anchorman) in the Paramount comedy, which Ferrell’s producing with frequent collaborator Adam McKay. Nice.
Besides, Cohen, McKay, Brian Burns (Entourage), and Chris Henchy (The Campaign) are writing the script which revolves around a ‘mild mannered radio exec, played by Ferrell, whose life gets chaotic when his wife’s ex-husband, played by Vaughn, arrives, forcing stepdad to compete for the affection of the kids.’
The idea is for Vaughn to do this film before taking Business Trip with New Regency. He signed on to the jet-setting comedy (described as being in the same vein as Planes, Trains & Automobiles) last month.
This all sounds like Daddy’s Home will start shortly, so expect this sometime in 2014.
