Will Ferrell has revealed the plot for a scrapped sequel to the 2008 cult comedy hit Step Brothers.

The original movie focuses on Ferrell and John C. Reilly as Brennan Huff and Dale Doback who hate each other but are forced to get along when their parents marry.

In an interview with the New York Daily News, Ferrell said that he and long-time collaborator Adam McKay had spoken about a potential storyline for the follow-up.

"We talked about 'Step Brothers,' and then Adam and I got sidetracked with other things," Ferrell told the Daily News.

"We had a whole story where John (C. Reilly) 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."

Ferrell also spoke about the trouble that he’s had with sequels, particularly in regards to Anchorman.

"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," Ferrell said.

"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.”
