SuicideGirls had a chance to talk with Talladega Nights director Adam McKay as he was out promoting the DVD release of his latest film and had a chance to talk to him about his upcoming movie Step Brothers starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. While the film is still in the scripting stage it is already set to begin filming in July 2007 and he has plenty to say about the state of things:
Daniel Robert Epstein: You have yet to direct an R-rated film, what rating will Step Brothers have?
Adam McKay: Step Brothers will be R rated. We’re not in any way censoring ourselves on this one. We’re not playing the PG-13 game. We’re not stopping language or nudity. Already there are a couple jokes that have nudity and just 25 pages into it we’ve already said fuck about seven times.
Daniel Robert Epstein: When do you start Step Brothers?
Adam McKay: We’ve finished the outline. We’re about 25 pages into the script. We’re slotted to start shooting in July, not too far off. Two people will be playing Will and John’s parents but who we don’t know who yet.
