Will Ferrell tells Andy Cohen he'd make 'Step Brothers' sequel

The Catalina Wine Mixer might be back in business.

During his appearance on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Will Ferrell took a few questions from callers, including one about potential sequels to some of his most enduring works.

The 49-year-old comedy star jokingly but abruptly shot down any possibility of doing follow-ups to “A Night at the Roxbury,” “Elf” and “Old School,” saying, “Just let ’em stand on their own.”

However, host Andy Cohen wouldn’t let go until Ferrell revealed at least one movie he’d like to revisit.

“Is there any film of yours that you’d like to go back to?” he asked.

“We talked a little bit about ‘Step Brothers,’ so who knows,” said Ferrell. “But at the same time, you like to create new things.”

Released in 2008 to mixed reviews, “Step Brothers” starred Ferrell and Academy Award-nominee John C. Reilly as two middle-age men forced to suddenly live together as brothers when their parents remarry.

Critic Roger Ebert gave the Adam McKay-directed film a notoriously bad review, stating, “When I left, I felt a little unclean.”

Though Ferrell’s interview with Cohen would suggest SNL’s former Harry Caray impersonator is sequel-adverse, his filmography includes starring roles in “Daddy’s Home 2” and “Anchorman 2” as well as supporting roles in “Zoolander 2” and “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me,” the follow-up to “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.”
