Ferrell and Reilly keen to team up again

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have been discussing making ‘Step Brothers 2’.

The actors starred in the 2008 comedy and the pair are keen to reprise their roles for a sequel.

Will said: “We just had a great meeting with John C. Reilly about maybe another ‘Step Brothers’. Because ‘Anchorman’ is a brick wall right now.

“We’re maybe playing around with the idea of that.”

However, Will says they would only consider the movie if Adam McKay directed it again.

He told collider.com: “We would have to all three do it. Totally.”

While he is keen to do ‘Step Brothers 2’, Ferrell recently claimed Paramount are "being idiots" by refusing to make 'Anchorman 2'.

The funnyman was set to return as the titular 70s newscaster in a sequel to 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy', but the film was cancelled by the studio last year, leaving Will, director Adam, and fans disappointed.

Will said: "We were going to do a Broadway musical and then have a film come out after the stage show.

"Everyone we tell the idea loves it, except for the studio that owns the rights. Ball's in their courts, but they're being idiots."
