If you enjoyed the comedic partnership of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in "Talladega Nights," then you’ll be pleased to learn that Sony has signed both goofballs to co-star in "Step Brothers," which will be co-written by Adam McKay, Ferrell’s partner on "Anchorman" and "Ricky Bobby."

From IGN FilmForce: "Columbia Pictures, the studio behind "Talladega," snapped up the pitch in preemptive deals for the script and its stars’ salaries. McKay and Ferrell will write the script for producers Judd Apatow and Jimmy Miller.

Variety says "Ferrell and Reilly will play coddled guys who live with their respective single parents. Their folks fall in love and marry, making the guys stepbrothers."
