"Anchorman 2" May Still Happen

Posted: May 3rd, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Anchorman 2" May Still HappenSubmit Comment
Director Adam McKay recently said that Paramount Pictures refused to finance the "Anchorman" sequel. Ben Stiller later followed that up by stating that the "Zoolander" sequel is having similar problems.

Now, Deadline is reporting that "Anchorman 2" may still happen if the film can be made for about $30 million. The original movie cost $26 million to make, but since then, most of the actors have become huge stars with bigger salaries.

And even though Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and others have agreed to lower their salaries, the budget is still higher than $30 million. In fact, it's around $70 million. The site added negotiations are going on, but things aren't looking good.

even if the sequel is sh*t, the first one was so popular that it would draw enough people out and easily make back its budge. This is just f*cking stupid of Paramount

If everyone lowered their salaries, how in the hell is this around $70 million? You get some cameras and some sets, and you have a sequel. Not that effin' hard.

The key word is " may ".

It doesn't mean anything until you see the ink dry on the contract.

"If everyone lowered their salaries, how in the hell is this around $70 million? You get some cameras and some sets, and you have a sequel. Not that effin' hard."

Don't forget the leather bound books and the rich mahagony. It's expensive.

$70 mill does sound a little expensive this time around. I wonder how much Baxter's pay went up since then? I hope he didn't burn any bridges after he ate the wheel of cheese and took a sh*t in the refrigerator.

Seriously though $70 mill sounds like a sh*tload of money to spend on a comedy, but it pretty much the standard budget for a Will Ferrell movie. Talladega Nights cost $72m and made $148m in the US ($168m WW). Step Brothers cost $65m and made $100m in the US ($128m WW). What's the f*cking problem Hwood, doubling your budget in profits isn't enough these days?
