The comedian told Collider that he will soon re-team with Step Brothers writer-director Adam McKay to pen a script for the proposed follow-up.

Ferrell added that if the writing goes well, he is hoping to shoot Step Brothers 2 with John C Reilly later this year.

Step Brothers proved to be an international hit in 2008, raking in more than $128m (£81.2m) at the worldwide box office.

The film featured Ferrell and Reilly as two unemployed 40-year-olds who clash when their parents (Richard Jenkins and Mary Steenburgen) marry.

Ferrell next stars in the Spanish-language comedy Casa de mi Padre opening on March 16 in US cinemas. A UK release date hasn't yet been determined.
