Gone Burgondy 2

Anchorman 2 has been hanging around in the Hollywood air like a stale fart for so long now that any sequel that might ever be made could never live up to the expectations of even the most hardcore fans of the first film. However, like the aforementioned stale fart, those rumours just won’t go away, even after director Adam McKay revealed that Paramount would not give him the budget he needed to make the film.

Surely now those fans will have to put a sock in it though, after star of the original and all-round famous funny man Will Ferrell said exactly the same thing, that Paramount simply won’t give them enough money. Sorry guys, it’s all over.

‘We want to make it but now it doesn't look like it's going to happen,’ said Ferrell. ‘Maybe the fans should write in to the studio and get something changed because it's not looking good. We were ready to go after they had wanted the movie made, then it was basically like, 'Yeah! Do it for 20 dollars!'. So right now it's kind of like the ball is in their court.

‘You get mad at first then a little frustrated, then you're like, 'Well, if it's not meant to be then it's not meant to be and we'll go on and do something else'.’
