Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell’s 2015 comedy about a duelling dad and stepdad is getting a sequel and some big names may be joining them.

According to DeadlineParamount is reportedly courting John Lithgow and Mel Gibson for roles in the comedy sequel “Daddy’s Home 2”, which has just been given a November 2018 release date.  No word on whom either of the stars will play, but it’s safe to assume they’re likely being eyed to play the fathers of Wahlberg and Ferrell’s characters.

The original movie was a hit, grossing $240 million at the box office, and landing Lithgow and Gibson is a solid move, with both men currently enjoying a big resurgence in their respective careers.

Gibson has been front and centre this awards season for directing the war drama, “Hacksaw Ridge”, a film that has earned six Oscar nominations, including Best Director and Best Picture, and an acting nod for star Andrew Garfield.

Meanwhile, Lithgow has been earning praise for his turn as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the Netflix series “The Crown”, most recently taking home the SAG Award for Best Actor In A Drama Series.

Roles in “Daddy’s Home 2” would be a change of pace for both Gibson and Lithgow, neither of whom has appeared in a comedy in years.
