After their collaboration in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby yielded a treasure chest of pure comedy gold, it seemed inevitable that pals Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly would once again join forces on the big screen. Thankfully, they didn't make us wait too long.
This July, Reilly and Ferrell team up for the comedy Step Brothers, about a pair of spoiled slackers who become bitter rivals after their single parents get hitched. Sony just released the Step Brothers trailer online -- check it out at the official site or at Yahoo! Movies and then ask yourself, "Do you like guacamole?"

While promoting his new flick Blades of Glory, Will Ferrell described his next project with comedy collaborator Adam McKay (Anchorman, Talladega Nights):
"McKay and I just finished our third script," said Ferrell. "We had so much fun working with John C. Reilly that the three of us came up with a premise: We're essentially two grown men who still live with a parent, and those parents get married and we still live at home, so we're these two stepbrothers. It's kind of like Brady Bunch meets Ordinary People. We're two 40-year-old guys who still live at home and we're still indignant about trying to get jobs."
Hmm...sounds like well-trodden territory. But who am I to question the comic genius of the Ferrell/McKay/Reilly triumvirate?
