Brothers Luke Wilson and Owen Wilson are frequently in the news for one reason or another, but it's a rare day that we reporters get to speak with the other Wilson brother, Andrew. He works in Hollywood, just like his siblings. He's had roles in "Fever Pitch," Mike Judge's "Idiocracy," "The Royal Tenenbaums," "Zoolander" and Drew Barrymore's upcoming directorial debut, "Whip It." He even co-directed 2005's "The Wendell Baker Story" with Luke.

Now, brothers Luke and Andrew are all set to direct together again. Speaking with MTV's Josh Horowitz while promoting "Whip It," Andrew revealed the first details on "Electric Avenue."

Do you believe in miracles? It’s a question at the heart of “Henry Poole is Here,” the new dramedy from director Mark Pellington, in which a fatally ill man (Luke Wilson) goes back to his old neighborhood to die, only to be accosted by all manner of craziness when an image of Jesus Christ appears on the side of his house.

Do you believe in miracles? I don’t and never have, not in the religious sense, anyway. So I challenged Wilson and co-star Rhada Mitchell to turn my skepticism upside down by suggesting they do something outrageous, something that never would happen in a normal interview – something that could only be called “miraculous.”

Watch the video below to see if Wilson agrees to my crazy demand, then ponder along with me – why haven’t I gotten my slipper yet?

Last year, director Wes Anderson told MTV News that he always thought of his characters as all existing in the same universe, making it possible, if not probable, that they could cross-over “in a very natural way,” he said.

“It would be great to see [all the characters] meet,” Jason Schwartzman added.

The whole thing was wildly hypothetical, of course, but still, it got us wondering if there could ever be a “Rushmore” or “Tenenbaums” sequel. What’s not to like about that?

“I don’t know if you can revisit any of those [characters],” Luke Wilson, who starred in Anderson’s “The Royal Tenenbaums,” “Rushmore,” and “Bottle Rocket,” told MTV News. “Something like ‘Old School’ could be more of a sequel or something like that – and that’s one I’ve heard mentioned.

So no “Tenenbaums 2: Electric Boogaloo”?

“I would have no problem playing another character again,” Wilson said. “You just would want the movie to be as good if not better as the first one. You wouldn’t want to ruin the goodwill you’ve created with another movie.”

What do you guys think? Anderson’s films are such singularities, peculiar in their own ways. Do you think any of them scream to be revisited? Sound off below.

bonoU2, P-Diddy, Morgan Spurlock and Charlize Theron were just a few of Hollywood's elite who took to the slopes of Sundance this past week to showcase their films – and my colleagues at MTV News spoke with all of them.

But forget the stars. From ground zero here in Los Angeles, the bird's eye view of the Festival was full of dollars, not Cents (as in 50), meaning big paydays for the following filmmakers:

"Hamlet 2": Hamlet tells his friend Horatio that "There are more things in heaven and earth, than are dreamt of in [his] philosophy." Yeah, no kidding, apparently there was a whole other story! The comedy flick with Steve Coogan as a teacher who writes a Shakespearean sequel sold to Focus Features for $10 million, easily the tops of the festival. And they said he was indecisive.
