As per James Caan, there won’t be a sequel to the hit Christmas fantasy-comedy “Elf” since Will Ferrell and director Jon Favreau “didn’t get along. ”We were gonna do it and I thought, ‘Oh my god, I finally got a franchise movie, I could make some money, let my kids do what the hell they want to do.’
Jon Favreau And Will Ferrell Collaboration
In 2003, Jon Favreau was transforming from a comedy actor who worked in films like Swinger, Very Bad Things to becoming a full-fledged director. He soon delivered his initial efforts by making a film known as Elf. The movie arrived at the theatres just after Will Ferrel left Saturday Night Live. The movie became a popular Christmas staple. And brought Ferrell stardom, combining together with his other work Old School and placed Favreau in the journey toward becoming an architect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Farelle And Favreau Having Different Opinions
Jon Favreau stated in a recent interview that he has an interest in coming back for a follow-up. He said that one can use the narrative structures in different ways and play with things in various ways that would impress the fans and the people who are involved might also take to another level.
while, Ferrell has been quite upfront about having no interest in reprising his role for a sequel in the years since, “Absolutely not…I just think it would look slightly pathetic if I tried to squeeze back in the elf tights: Buddy the middle-aged elf.” He still stuck to his opinion in a later interview.
The Story And Budget Of The Movie Elf
Made on a budget of just $33 million, the film was a huge hit in the box office and grossed $220.4 million in the worldwide box office. “Elf” is regarded as one of the greatest Christmas movies.
