While Paramount rejected plans for an "Anchorman 2," Ben Stiller and Justin Theroux have been hard at work to the sequel of their own hit comedy, "Zoolander." For much of last year, the project played second fiddle to the Will Ferrell vehicle, but no matter, as Stiller and Theroux have been plugging away at the script. But catching up with Empire recently, the former revealed that the script is done, in the hands of the studio and now it's up to them to decide what happens next.

Comedians Faithfully Redo The Classic Bing Crosby/David Bowie Christmas DuetDavid Bowie (Will Ferrell) visits Bing Crosby (John C. Reilly) during the holidays to sing a mash-up duet of two Christmas classics, "Peace on Earth" & "The Little Drummer Boy."

Crosby's line of questioning basically amounts to, "do you alien freaks do normal x-mas stuff besides anal rape and self-mutilation?" and Ferrell and Reilly do a good job of underscoring that vibe without underlining it too obviously. Both clips below.

With John Hillcoat's 'The Promised Land' Back From The Dead, We Look At Other Films Currently In The Studio GravesLast year, pre-production was halted immediately on “The Wettest Country” -- aka John Hillcoat's "The Promised Land" starring Amy Adams, Shia LaBeouf, Ryan Gosling, Paul Dano, possibly Scarlett Johansson, Michael Shannon, etc. -- potentially killing a film we were all very excited to see. But, stunningly, the film has found a new lease on life with the involvement of Tom Hardy (Hillcoat and LaBeouf are the only other principal talent that's back so far), warming our hearts considering since we were ready to cast it onto the pile of would-be movies dead and buried.

Jay Roach Attached To DirectListen Hollywood, we know that for whatever inane reason you can't find sufficient reason to greenlight "Anchorman 2" or "Zoolander 2" (yet), but holy sweet molasses, when Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis come knocking on your door, don't turn them away.
