John C. Reilly Says He's Down For A 'Step Brothers' Sequel

The director has teased that there may be a sequel, Will Ferrell has revealed the potential plot and now John C. Reilly has said he's up for it - so what are we waiting for, chaps? A sequel to the beloved comedy movie Step Brothers, that's what - let's get to it.

Reilly, who played Dale Doback in the original movie back in 2008, told Good Morning America that he was on board to make a follow-up, saying: "It requires the cooperation of a few other people but I would love to do another one of those. If possible, yeah."

Reilly was on a promotional run for his upcoming film Ralph Breaks the Internet, which is a sequel to Wreck-It Ralph. What a way to take the glory from that, ey?

When he was asked by GMA host Michael Strahan if there was a movie role in his career he would like to revisit, he said: "I know what you're gonna want me to say, Michael. Step Brothers."

This was met by cheers from the audience.

Step Brothers, which turned 10 this year, taught us many things: always choose bunk beds, tree houses are fucking cool - never badmouth a tree house - and if you really want to piss someone off, put your genitalia on their belongings. Easy enough.

For the anniversary of the film, we dug out a blooper reel and found out what really got the actors in a tizz - nothing other than good old sex chat. Mature as ever, LADs.

Reilly starred alongside Will Ferrell (who played Brennan Huff, Dale's step brother - kind obvious, I suppose) in the movie, with the pair essentially being very strange man-children. Brennan's mum, Nancy, and Dale's dad, Robert, get married and neither of their kids are best pleased about the arrangement.

Despite being in their late 30s, both are unemployed and several job interviews are scheduled for them. You can imagine how they went - cue the game of fuck, marry, kill...

In the full blooper reel we watch Dale receive Hulk hands for Christmas (does anyone remember those bad boys?) while Brennan gets a wallet, which he is less than impressed about.

But forget about that, what we really want to know is everyone else's stance on a sequel.

In an interview with CinemaBlend, the film's director Adam McKay said: "It is very possible in five years, because I don't think the Step Brothers idea gets worse the older these guys get. We could all look at each other and go, 'Alright, let's go do it.'

"A while ago I said, 'No way we're doing it,' but I thought about it. I was like, 'Why am I saying that? We definitely could end up doing that.'"

DO IT FOR THE PEOPLE.
