EXCLUSIVE: Paramount Pictures and Gary Sanchez Productions have set a sequel to Daddy’s Home, the crowd-pleasing comedy which opened last Christmas and turned in a $240 million worldwide gross. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have signed to reprise their mismatched buddy characters. Sean Anders and John Morris are also returning to write the script and Anders to direct. The studio is keeping the logline under wraps.

No word on a reprise for the rest of the original cast that included Hannibal Buress, Linda Cardellini and Thomas Haden Church. The picture became the highest offshore gross of any picture Ferrell has made.

Ferrell, Anders and Morris are repped by UTA and Mosaic. Wahlberg is with WME and Leverage.

When 38-year-old Jackie Becker and her mom stopped by the set of “Patriot’s Day,” Mark Wahlberg’s new film, they simply wanted to catch a glimpse of the actor. But their hours of waiting paid off when Jackie, who suffered brain damage as a child, got to meet Wahlberg, who then invited them to the movie premiere.

Jackie contracted eastern equine encephalitis (EEEV) from a mosquito bite when she was 6 years old. EEEV is one of the most severe mosquito-transmitted diseases in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with a 33 percent mortality rate and significant brain damage in most survivors. Only a few cases are reported annually.

“She can’t do the things she used to be able to do. Her fine motor skills are tough. She can’t color, she can’t play with dolls,” Jean Becker, Jackie’s mother, told Fox25.

Movies and movie stars became a big part of her daughter’s world after she got sick, Jean said.

The mother and daughter live in Framingham, Mass., where Wahlberg is filming “Patriot’s Day.” When they went by the set, they waited by his trailer.

“He called us up to the trailer, and he was wonderful,” Jean told Fox25. “He came right up to Jackie. He leaned down to her, and he said ‘hi’ to her.”

Jackie told the news channel she didn’t expect the actor would talk to her.

“It was cool,” Jackie said.

An invite to the premiere of “Patriots day” helped make for “the best day of [Jackie’s] life,” Jean said.

“I said to him, ‘You have no idea what you just did,’” Jean told Fox25.

Mark Wahlberg was spotted at the Marathon finish line on Boylston Street early Monday morning filming scenes for the Boston Marathon bombing movie, “Patriots Day.”

Wahlberg, who was dressed in Boston police gear, plays a composite of several different Boston police officers who were on duty during the blasts.

Wahlberg said recently he feels “huge pressure to get this right, but we’re committed to doing that.”

“Patriots Day” has been filming scenes in Weymouth, Dorchester, and Jamaica Plain in recent weeks.

Tom Meagher, who has been making sure everything is in place at the finish line for 20 years, said there was a slight impact from the filming this time around.

“It’s different, but they make adjustments and we make a little bit of adjustments,” he said. But he’s not worried about the film — Meagher said Monday is all about the runners.

DAVENPORT — He stopped each time someone called his name, honored every request for a photo, and took a sincere interest in everyone he met.

Friday, before addressing a sold-out luncheon and meet-and-greet to benefit Gilda’s Club Quad Cities, Donnie Wahlberg shared time with patients and staff at the Genesis Cancer Institute.

Dressed in a blue suit, red tie and brown shoes, the member of the band New Kids on the Block and star of television’s “Blue Bloods” played to packed houses everywhere he went Friday.

Also the star of the unscripted shows “Wahlburgers” and “Donnie Loves Jenny,” Mr. Wahlberg visited Gilda’s Club and Genesis before before the noon luncheon at Davenport’s RiverCenter.

“You guys here at Genesis are the real stars,” Mr. Wahlberg said, speaking before a packed lobby filled with patients and staff. “It is amazing, the work you do. I appreciate that you applauded when I was introduced, but you are the ones who should be applauded.”

Mr. Wahlberg shared with fondness a story about the first time New Kids played Davenport 30 years ago, then set his sights on the work the institute does.

“I cannot be more proud of the strength you show,” Mr. Wahlberg said, stopping to talk with Davenport’s Kelsey Burmeister, just after Ms. Burmeister completed a cancer treatment. “It takes great resolve. I admire you. Please stay; walk with us.”

Mr. Wahlberg said he has learned to draw each day on the Gilda’s Club message.

“I have learned that message — ‘all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community’ — carries a great deal of weight,” he said. “It’s something I have taken to with everything in life.”

With the help of Sue Warren, executive director of Gilda’s Club, Ms. Burmeister secured a New Kids poster. She asked Mr. Wahlberg to sign the poster. Without hesitation, he did.

“I should be the one asking her for her autograph,” he said.

This April, you could cook (and eat) dinner with a Wahlberg.

Paul Wahlberg, owner and executive chef of Hingham-based Alma Nove and expanding burger chain Wahlburgers, will lead a cooking demonstration and dinner at the Boston Public Market in its KITCHEN space.

The April 13 event, hosted by the Trustees of Reservations, will include an hour-long interactive cooking demonstration on how to prepare a meal with locally sourced ingredients, followed by a seated dinner.

“This Market, and the teaching space The KITCHEN brings to it, represents a much-needed and unique opportunity to support the regional farms, farmers, and small businesses that are so important to the health and sustainability of our local economy and food movement,’’ Wahlberg said in a statement.

A portion of the ticket sales benefits the Wahlberg family charity, Alma Cares, which fed 1,500 families in need last year, according to a statement from the Trustees. Tickets are $68 for Trustees members and $85 for nonmembers. Each ticket includes the demo, appetizers, a three-course dinner, dessert, and one complimentary beverage.

It took nearly four months, but persistence paid off.

Rick Jolly, substance abuse coordinator for Woburn, and director of Mayor Scott Galvin’s Coalition on Substance Abuse, said city and health officials have worked hard over the past year to raise awareness in Woburn. Still, it’s not enough.

From Nov. 1, 2015 to March 15 of this year, the city has recorded 33 overdoses – six of them have resulted in death.

According to Jolly, surveys indicate four of five heroin users began their journey to addiction with prescription painkillers.

Addiction has become omnipresent in communities. Jolly’s own nephew, he told the audience, would be late for the film because he was attending a wake for a man who passed away at 26, the result of an overdose.

“That’s the reality of it,” said Jolly.

Jolly introduced James Wahlberg, who wrote the short film, “If Only,” with Michael Yebba. Wahlberg is also executive director of the Mark Wahlberg Foundation.

The screenplay was written to encourage an open dialogue between parents and children.

Wahlberg said the movie, which was filmed entirely in Massachusetts, with a significant portion filmed in Tewksbury, has been shown in communities across the country.

Wahlberg, who calls himself a “recovering person,” said a number of the film’s characters were portrayed by family members, including his son, Jeffery, who starred as Issac Diaz, a teenager trying to fit in at school.

His reasoning was simple: getting people to talk about prescription drugs and opioid addiction.

“I believe for the most part, it’s starting in people’s medicine cabinets,” he said.

Wahlberg said kids are taking pills from those cabinets – some that parents may have forgotten about – and using them
But his is not the only family involved with the film. A number of families who have lost loved ones to addiction are featured at the end of the film, holding photos of a son or daughter.

Actor Mark Wahlberg was spotted Wednesday in Quincy filming scenes for the upcoming movie “Patriots Day,” which depicts the events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombings.

Quincy Police posted a photo of Wahlberg, a Dorchester native, waving to a crowd of onlookers near the set.

Filmmakers set up in the Merrymount neighborhood of Quincy this week to shoot scenes, which focus on Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s capture.

Wahlberg will star in the movie as Sgt. Tommy Saunders.

John Goodman will play Ed Davis, the former Boston Police Commissioner and current WBZ-TV security analyst. J.K. Simmons is set to portray Sgt. Jeffrey Pugliese.

Watertown officials and campus leaders at UMass Dartmouth declined the opportunity to host the film crew.

Some scenes will be filmed on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus, though none depicting the murder of MIT Officer Sean Collier.

A release date has been set for Dec. 21 for theaters in Boston, New York and Los Angeles, before a wider release on Jan. 13, 2017.

Patriots Day is being produced by WBZ’s sister company CBS Films.

In advance of unveiling its fall schedule at the upfronts in May, CBS Entertainment on Friday announced renewals for eleven more primetime series — a list that includes all the usual suspects among ongoing shows except “Criminal Minds.” Decisions on first-year series will be announced in the coming weeks.

The series announced to return are “Blue Bloods,” “Elementary,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “Madam Secretary,” “Mom,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “NCIS: New Orleans,” “Scorpion,” “2 Broke Girls,” “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race.”

They join the previously renewed “The Big Bang Theory” and “NCIS,” the network’s top-rated programs. Also as previously announced, “Mike & Molly,” “Person of Interest” and “The Good Wife” are ending after their current seasons wrap this spring.

None of the renewals is a real surprise, as each of the shows has played a role in the current success of CBS, which stands as primetime’s top-rated network in adults 18-49, 25-54 and total viewers. “Elementary” is the lowest-rated of the bunch, but it has been tasked with airing in the tough Sunday 10 p.m. timeslot.

The absence of “Criminal Minds” on the list shouldn’t be a cause of alarm for its fans, as the network likes to weigh all options as it pencils in its 2016-17 schedule plans. The show remains a strong performer, and its renewal for season 12 could be tied to the fate of spinoff “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders,” which has only aired two times.

The only other current non-rookie series that has yet to be renewed or canceled are “CSI: Cyber” and “The Odd Couple.” The former has concluded its second season, while the latter launches its sophomore season next month.

CBS will make decisions on its first-year series closer to the upfronts. At an investor conference in Florida earlier this month, CBS Corp. Leslie Moonves sounded bullish on the prospects of most of these rookies, which would mean good news for the likes of “Supergirl” and “Life in Pieces.”

Inspired by the 2010 disaster on the offshore drilling rig Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico, Peter Berg’s new film puts us right in the tragedy, as authorities seek to rescue the crew and stop the biggest oil spill in U.S. history.

The first trailer for Deepwater Horizon has arrived and the real-life inspiration, plus a cast which includes Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, John Malkovich, Gina Rodriguez, Dylan O’Brien and Kate Hudson, should make a compelling film.
