Here’s an early Father’s Day present for all you dads (and okay, everyone else) out there. Paramount has just dropped a new trailer for Daddy’s Home, which reunites The Other Guys co-stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg as two feuding papas.
See, Ferrell is the well-meaning, if kind of boring, stepdad to two adorable children. But his relationship with them is jeopardized when the kids’ biological father, a cool special-ops agent played by Wahlberg, comes back into the picture. Linda Cardellini plays the mom caught in the middle. Watch the Daddy’s Home trailer after the jump. Read More »

Now over a decade old, Mean Girls has become one of the most well-regarded teen films of the 2000s. Written by Tina Fey, directed by Mark Waters and starring Lindsay Lohan, the smart, saavy satire painted a believable, funny portrayal of high school life that’s still speaking to audiences today. Fey’s script, her first, was based on a book called Queen Bees and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman and now Wiseman’s follow up is also getting the film treatment.
The film will be called Mean Moms, based on Wiseman’s book Queen Bee Moms & King Pin Dads. Sean Anders (Horrible Bosses 2) will direct and Jennifer Aniston is potentially circling one of the leads. Read about the Mean Girls spinoff below. Read More »
Dwayne Johnson recently tweeted a photo of him reading the script for his next movie. He described it as a “big action comedy” and said his co-star would soon be revealed. That’s now happened. It’s none other than Kevin Hart, the current go-to second lead in big comedies (Ride Along, Think Like A Man, Get Hard, The Wedding Ringer). They’ll co-star in a buddy action comedy called Central Intelligence, directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (We’re The Millers). Read More »
In a story that’s worthy of April 1st, Dwayne Johnson is “loosely attached” to Paramount’s long-gestating big-screen take on Baywatch. The adaptation of the hit TV show has been in development for years and is now once again picking up steam with a new writer and director team. Comedy writer Justin Malen is rewriting the script (which was most recently penned by Reno 911 co-creator Robert Ben Garant) for Sean Anders and John Morris, the team behind We’re the Millers and Horrible Bosses 2, who are directing.
UPDATE: The Rock has confirmed his involvement.

You’ve gotta love how Warner Bros. is marketing Horrible Bosses 2. The last trailer pushed the edges of what “Green Band” could do, featuring some incredibly racy dialogue from co-star Jennifer Aniston. She’s back in the latest trailer, called the “Official Main Trailer” and again her story sets the tone with some hilarious, off-color humor. Everyone seems to be really going for it here and, hopefully, the movie itself adheres to that.
Horrible Bosses 2 returns all the stars of the 2011 hit. Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis are once again three normal guys with major issues who turn to crime for a solution. Instead of murder though, this time the trio decide to take up kidnapping. Specifically, they target a guy and his father, played by Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz.
Directed by Sean Anders, check out the latest Horrible Bosses 2 trailer below. Read More »

We’ve been thinking about Adam McKay’s buddy action/comedy film The Other Guys recently, thanks to McKay’s flirtation with Marvel’s Ant-Man. But while that situation didn’t work out, it seems like Paramount is thinking about The Other Guys, too. The studio is setting that film’s two stars, Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell, to take the leads in the comedy Daddy’s Home, about two men battling for the love and attention of their children.
