‘Anchorman 2′ not greenlit due to actors’ paychecks

HollywoodNews.com: If you’re scratching your head wondering why “Anchorman 2” was never greenlit at Paramount, it’s because the actors’ salaries would have been through the roof.

In talking to Collider, Will Ferrell revealed “If you’re getting myself, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and probably a bunch of other people who would line up to be in that movie, it’s going to cost a certain amount.

“We were basically begged to for years and years, like, ‘Would you guys ever do a sequel? Would you ever do a sequel?’ We warmed up to the idea and we were like, ‘That could actually be a lot of fun’.”

He added: “And we got everyone together and then they were basically like, ‘Great! We can’t believe it! But you have to do it for this amount’. And we were like, ‘Oh, well there’s no way we can do it for that’. Right now the ball is in their court.”

Despite Ferrell’s inside info, Digital Spy reminds us of Adam McKay’s quote on Twitter: “So bummed. Paramount basically passed on Anchorman 2. Even after we cut our budget down. We tried.”
