Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd have both admitted that they have no idea if an Anchorman sequel would go ahead.
Earlier this year it looked as if the second movie to the hit 2004 comedy was ready to go ahead with all of the cast keen to reprise their roles.
Director Adam Mckay was also on board and he and Ferrell were ready to begin writing the script.
But McKay broke the news on Twitter in late April that Paramount were no longer backing Anchorman 2, despite McKay slashing the budget for the film.
Speaking to MTV Ferrell said: "It's up to Paramount. They got to get their heads out of their you-know-whats and make that a reality. So the ball's in their court."
And Paul Rudd admits that no one knows why this project hasn't gone ahead: "I was actually talking to Adam McKay about this last night, and we don't know. For some reason, they don't want to make it,
"I guess. I hope it's one of those things that does get resolved, because I think we're all excited.
"If it doesn't happen, we'll just look to do 'Anchorman 3,' " he added. "The second one's never good anyway."
