Seth Rogen's Wife Lauren Wrote An Incredibly Moving, Important Piece On The Will Ferrell Alzheimer's Movie Scandal

Lauren Miller Rogen is a funny lady, but she's pretty damn serious about Alzheimer's.

The actress and screenwriter, who is married to star Seth Rogen, cofounded Hilarity For Charity specifically to raise awareness (and therefore research funding) for the degenerative disease that affected her mother.

So when she heard about Will Ferrell starring in an "Alzheimer's comedy," she figured she needed to investigate.

She writes in a poignant new essay:

"I have long advocated that Alzheimer's should be more prominent in movies and TV so that it can be destigmatized and humanized in the same way that cancer and HIV/AIDS have been. In order for Alzheimer's to receive the funding it needs and deserves, it needs to be understood by the millions of people who think memory loss is a normal part of aging (it's not) or even funny (it's definitely not)."

Not wanting to prejudge the material, Lauren tracked down the Black List script, which she thought was actually "well-written" even if it "does not portray the disease in an accurate way."

But there's something far more troubling, Lauren writes, than the movie. She explains:

Sorry, Step Brothers Fans — That Sequel News You've Been Hearing Is A HOAX!

| Filed under: Film FlickersOops!Will Ferrell

no title

For some strange reason, people still believe everything they read on the Internet — even though it ultimately leads to false hope, followed by self loathing and despair.

We mean other sites, obvi. Ha!

The sick and twisted cycle continued this week, when a fake report circulated the web claiming that Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly were set to film a sequel to their 2008 hit comedy Step Brothers later this year!

Fans went into a frenzy after reading that the comedic duo would be back to film Step Brothers 2 in Richmond, Virginia (or Sacramento, CA — depending on which sketchy outlet you read the "news" from) along with Richard Jenkins and Mary Steenburgen!

The sneaky hoax article also claimed that Ferrell was already writing a script with director Adam McKay, which followed Dale and Brennan living together in an apartment and having to raise a baby by themselves. (Still mad this sequel isn't real??)

Unsurprisingly, sources close to the original film confirmed the sequel won't be happening anytime soon — something McKay said himself just a few months ago.

Earlier this year, The Big Short filmmaker told reports that he and Ferrell haven't even decided on a potential story idea for the sequel, let alone started on a script!

So, there you have it, folks — it looks like this rumor is debunked and there won't be a Step Brothers 2 filming this year.

But after the disappointing reception of Anchorman 2, maybe this isn't such bad news, after all?
