This weekend, Daddy’s Home 2, a sequel to the box office hit, Daddy’s Home, is out, and while it currently has 14% on Rotten Tomatoes, fans of Will Ferrell will most likely see it and make it a hit. But there’s one movie that Ferrell fans have been waiting for a sequel to: Step Brothers.
The 2008 comedy was a big hit, and it continues to gain more and more popularity as the years go by. But while s sequel is not very likely, especially since fans didn’t like the sequel to Anchorman (another classic Ferrell movie), Ferrell does have a plot line ready to go if the movie ever comes to fruition.
Here’s what Ferrell recently told NY Daily News:
“We talked about ‘Step Brothers,’ and then Adam [McKay] and I got sidetracked with other things. We had a whole story where John and I follow our parents to live in a retirement community and try to convince them that we earned the right to retire as well.”
That sounds amazing. Here’s what else Ferrell had to say:
“The sequel thing is so funny because, we decided obviously to go down the road with ‘Anchorman,’ and we made what I thought was a really great sequel, really funny. 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.’ So I guess it’s a catch-22. It’s a nice catch-22, because people love the movies in the first place.”
While Ferrell says there are no plans to make a Step Brothers sequel, at least we can all hope that a sequel to Elf comes out soon. Does anyone want that? Only me? Got it.
