Anchorman 2 Still Alive, Just Too Expensive


Last week Paramount reportedly passed on sequels to Anchorman and Zoolander. Now, though, Mike Fleming says that neither movie is totally dead and that the studio would okay them at budgets around $40 million (the Anchorman 2 pitched last week would have cost nearly $70 million, allegedly, even though the original cost just $26 million). So shoot the thing in 3-D and have the cast provide their own mustaches. Problem solved. [Deadline]
