Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell star in Daddy’s Home, a comedy from directing duo Sean Anders and John Morris (Horrible Bosses 2; We’re the Millers).

Ferrell also produces alongside Joseph Drake, Nathan Kahane and Adam McKay; Gary Sanchez Productions is the shingle behind the film.

Daddy’s Girl is the latest in a hefty raft of titles choosing Louisiana – recently on KFTV we detailed the Sylvester Stallone/Gerard Butler blockbuster for Warner Bros., Geostorm. And Tom Hiddleston is already in the Pelican State playing legendary country singer Hank Williams in I Saw the Light, a biopic from super producer Brett Ratner.

There is plenty lining up to shoot in Louisiana too - taking advantage of the favourable tax breaks of up to 30%. The Cicely Tyson-starrer Showing Roots is currently in pre-production as is NBC Universal’s major new pilot, The Magicians, adapted from Lev Grossman’s best-selling fantasy series.
