HOLLYWOOD, California – The 2008 Will Ferrell comedy, Step Brothers, is finally getting a sequel and will film in Syracuse, New York next summer. Reports are claiming that all of the original cast will return including Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Adam Scott, Mary Steenburgen, Richard Jenkins, and others.
The producers released a short description of the upcoming film in their press release this morning: “The two step brothers have moved to Syracuse, New York where they live together and also work together at the same menial job. Dale finds out that he’s somehow impregnated his ‘girlfriend’ but when the young woman leaves the new baby with Dale and Brennan the two are left to raise the child themselves.”
A casting call for extras from the Syracuse area is set to begin in just a few months. When asked why they’ve chosen to make a sequel after so many years, the producers said, “People want sequels to all of the great movies from the past and they love remakes too! I can definitely see in maybe 20 years doing a remake of Step Brothers, maybe this time with an all black cast, or all Asian cast… something to mix it up, ya know?”
