Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly Reteam for ‘Holmes and Watson’

The Stepbrothers & Talledaga Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby stars have signed up to star in a new comedy based around the literary detective legends Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Get Hard‘s Etan Cohen is on board to direct the film which has actually been kicking around for quite some time with the original duo being Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen.

For some time there was rumours of a sequel to Stepbrothers in the works but that never eventuated.
