Earlier today, Steve sat down with Will Ferrell for Casa de mi Padre, and learned some good news and some bad news. Bad news first: Anchorman 2 remains dead. There were places for a sequel to go, but the movie isn’t going anywhere. Now the good news: you may remember that last May, Ferrell said he, John C. Reilly, and writer-director Adam McKay were considering a sequel to Step Brothers. Today, Ferrell told Steve that they are going to start writing a script really soon with the hope of filming it in the fall.
That’s a fairly quick turnaround. In June, we heard that McKay and Ferrell were considering the football comedy Three Mississippi. The movie is about two Philadelphia neighbors whose annual Thanksgiving game of tackle football has become extraordinarily heated. I like that premise, but you won’t hear me complaining if Step Brothers 2 goes in front of cameras first. I’m always up for a fuckin’ Catalina wine mixer. Look for part of Steve’s interview later today (we’ll update this article) but until then, watch the trailer for the first Step Brothers after the jump.
