The stars of Anchorman have agreed to come on board at a reduced rate to film a possible '80s themed sequel to the hit movie.
Writer and director Adam McKay said originals including Paul Rudd and Steve Carell had agreed to cut their rates to return.
He said filming the sequel ulimately came down to money and that he was working with Paramount to secure funding for the project.
"it's a tricky movie because everyone went and did really well after it, so everyone's prices went up and everyone's time got a little more valuable," McKay told Perez Hilton.
"But at the same time, graciously, Steve and Paul and everyone agreed to cut their price to come and do (the sequel), which you don't see very often in Hollywood - and cut their price substantially."
McKay is keeping mum on the direction of the sequel, only to say: "So our idea is if we're going to do a second one, we better go for it and try some insane stuff and we'll be enjoying it and that way it can't be half bad."
Carrell has confirmed he would join Anchorman 2 "in a second".
