WILL FERRELL turned down ELF 2 and a $29 MIL PAYCHECK

Will Ferrell revealed he turned down Elf 2 and a $29 million paycheck. Ferrell told The Hollywood Reporter that the script was written but he couldn’t get behind it. “I would have had to promote the movie from an honest place, which would’ve been, like, ‘Oh no, it’s not good. I just couldn’t turn down that much money,’” Ferrell said. “And I thought, ‘Can I actually say those words? I don’t think I can, so I guess I can’t do the movie.’”
