Will Ferrell Has Revealed The Plot For A Scrapped Step Brothers Sequel

Will Ferrell Has Revealed The Plot For A Scrapped Step Brothers Sequel”

"We talked about Step Brothers and then Adam and I got sidetracked with other things", Ferrell explained.

It nearly happened a few years ago: following the box-office success of the original, written by Ferrell and also starring John C. Reilly, there was talk of number two back in 2012. But whilst there were murmurings about Step Brothers 2 around the time of its release, nothing was ever realized. Director Adam McKay originally planned to make it, but the project got put on hold to make Anchorman 2 instead. From the sound of what Ferrell and McKay were working on, however, that wouldn't have been the case with Step Brothers 2, as long as they didn't double down on the Prestige Worldwide pitch video or the montage of job interviews. Hint: It might've been even more freaky, all things considered.

Chatting with the New York Daily News, Ferrell mentioned there was something he and Adam McKay had considered for a sequel to the beloved cult-classic. While we may someday be blessed with a Step Brothers sequel, the follow-up to the 2008 cult hit comedy is now little more than an unrealized dream. Sometimes it's best to leave things be.

Ferrell told the Daily News that he thoughts Anchorman 2 was a "really great sequel", but said it did not resonate with everyone.

"The entertainment media and fans beg you, and beg you, and beg you for sequels, and then you make it and you definitely have a fraction that's like, 'Well, not as good as the first one'. It's a nice catch-22, because people love the movies in the first place". I guess we'll see, but as of now there are no plans. "For a second I did, just 'cause comedy sequels are like the hardest thing to do 'cause half the joke's out of the bag already".

Step Brothers seems to tick all the sequel boxes, so it's a surprise in some ways that one has never arrived.

This being said, the star of Elf and has made a few sequels before - Daddy's Home 2, Anchorman 2, Zoolander 2 all spring to mind - so we're still holding onto hope that Nighthawk and Dragon will be back together. Ferrell says that the idea would be for Reilly and his characters to follow their parents (Richard Jenkins and Mary Steenburgen) to a retirement community and then convince their parents that they've earned retirement as well. "We just don't want to be doing sequels of everything".
