Vince Vaughn - Vince Vaughn to star in Daddy's Home

Vince Vaughn has been cast in 'Daddy's Home'.

The 'Couples Retreat' actor will star alongside Will Ferrell in the Etan Cohen-directed comedy caper from Paramount Pictures.

The film centres on a radio executive (Ferrell) who is committed to being the best stepfather he can be to his wife's two children from a previous marriage, however, the re-emergence of their biological father (Vaughn) leads to comically disastrous results as the two alpha males battle for the kids' affection.

As well as starring in the flick, Ferrell will produce through his Gary Sanchez company along with Adam McKay, and Good Universe's Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane are also on board to produce.

The script comes from Brian Burns, Adam McKay, Chris Henchy and the film's director, Etan Cohen.

Vaughn has two new comedies due for release this year including 'The Internship', co-starring Luke Wilson, and 'Delivery Man'. He is also attached to star in another laugher, 'Business Trip', which is expected to film after 'Daddy's Home'.

Meanwhile, Ferrell is currently filming the highly anticipated 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues', the follow-up to his 2004 cult comedy, 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy', in which he played the titular egotistical TV newscaster.

'Daddy's Home' will begin filming later this year.
