Will Ferrell Says ANCHORMAN 2 Nixed by “Idiots” at Paramount

Published

on

We’ve known for a while that ANCHORMAN 2 was something that everyone wanted to do.  Will Ferrell and Adam McKay had a script idea and the cast was ready to take pay cuts just to work together again.  However, now we have confirmation from the man himself that it was executives at Paramount who nixed the idea.

At a screening for Ferrell’s new indie comedy EVERYTHING MUST GO, he told reporters that Paramount doesn’t believe ANCHORMAN 2 would be a success:

“‘Anchorman 2,’ you’d have to really assert some kind of email hate campaign to Paramount Pictures because they’ve told us, quote-unquote, ‘We’ve run the numbers and it’s not a good fit,'”

Ferrell says that he and McKay had a great, old school idea on how to execute the sequel, and at least everyone else loves it:

“We were going to do almost a reverse … almost like how the Marx brothers used to do. We were going to do a Broadway musical and then have a film come out after the stage show…Everyone we tell the idea loves it, except for the studio that owns the rights. Ball’s in their courts, but they’re being idiots.”

How ANCHORMAN 2 wouldn’t be profitable, I have no idea.  The movie is literally the most quotable movie of the past 50 years.  If you don’t believe me, check out the reel below of JUST Brick Tamland.

Residents At A Care Home In England Have Recreated Iconic Album Covers During Lockdown

That’s one for the photo album.

The coronavirus has brought about a number of tough challenges for folks all around the globe but being quarantined in a care home for four whole months has to be among the toughest. With no visitors and no place to go it would be easy for the residents, as well as the caregivers, to give up hope. Well, entertainment manager Robert Speker over at Sydmar Lodge Care Home in Edgware, England found a creative way to keep hope rockin’ with his very photogenic residents and staff.

Over the course of the four month quarantine, Speker worked with some of the home residents and staffers to recreate iconic album covers. His reimagined covers include some of the biggest in music history such as Madonna’s “True Blue,” David Bowie’s “Aladdin Sane,” Michael Jackson’s “Bad” and Adele’s “21”…that’s right I am putting Adele in that league. The inspiring photos shared to social media are trending for all the right reasons. One Twitter user wrote “Calendar? I would buy one!” Another asked “do y’all take requests?” And finally one comment which rings truest of all read “This is what social media was made for.”

Check out some of the covers below!

Need Some Good News? Millions Of Baby Turtles Just Made Their Way To The Ocean

Finally, the universe shells out some good news.

Nature is pretty scary right now. There’s a mysterious virus wafting through the air around the world. There are things called murder hornets zipping to places they shouldn’t be zipping to. At any moment I am waiting for the dust bunnies under my bed to grow fangs and turn on me. Alas, among all the bad news there is bound to be some good news and today’s good news comes in the form of baby turtles.

Over on India’s eastern coast lies Odisha’s Gahirmatha Beach, a nesting spot for the endangered Olive Ridley turtles. Each year around this time millions of turtle hatchlings scamper through the sand and make their way to the ocean. The mass nesting typically attracts thousands of tourists who tend to disturb the nesting turtles but because the coronavirus pandemic has reduced the human activity on the beach, more turtles were able to lay their eggs resulting in one of the highest turtles births ever! Perhaps every grey cloud does have a hardened, turtle-shelled lining.

Check out the video of the amazing good news below!
