Update from Editor Peter Sciretta: Apparently this report has been confirmed false. Ed Helms tells The Playlist that while he is a big fan of the Chevy Chase classic Vacation, he doesn’t know where the rumors originated (Perez Hilton…) and has yet to be approached for the project:

“I have no idea where that bubbled up. I don’t know where that came from. It’s nothing I know of.”

The original story follows after the jump.

This edition of Sequel Bits is brought to you by the letters “L,” “O,” and “L.” Which is just my not terribly clever way of saying it’s all about the comedies. After the jump:

  • Will Ferrell confirms that Anchorman 2 is still dead, but Step Brothers 2 could get going soon
  • Jay Baruchel briefly talks Cartoon Network’s Dragons and How to Train Your Dragon 2
  • Ed Helms offers a very minor status update on The Hangover Part III

Happy Friday! Today’s Sequel Bits involves three comedies of varying degrees of hilarity, plus a spooky-sounding book. After the jump:

  • Shawn Levy could “very possibly” be directing Night at the Museum 3

The Hangover and The Hangover: Part II may have been pure fiction, but it seems Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms have learned a thing or two from the films about sticking together. The three leads are said to be presenting a united front in negotiations for The Hangover: Part III, demanding $15 million each against backend. To put things in perspective, the first Hangover had a production budget of $35 million total. More details after the jump.

‘Jeff Who Lives at Home’ Exclusive Poster Debut

Jay and Mark Duplass are following up their film Cyrus with Jeff Who Lives at Home, starring Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Judy Greer, and Susan Sarandon. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last September, where it was called “a lovely, nicely paced and completely heartfelt look at a complicated relationship between brothers” (CinemaBlend) and the best film yet from the Duplass brothers, which “doesn’t suddenly break your heart, but, rather, it suddenly heals it — with a moment of such delicacy and sincerity that you feel lucky to witness it.” (The Playlist)

Jeff Who Lives at Home will open limited on March 16. The trailer for the film premieres tomorrow on Apple. In the meantime, check out the new poster below. Read More »

If last month’s trailer for The Lorax seemed surprisingly cutesy and sweet for an urgent environmental fable, perhaps the new Australian trailer will balance it out. Where the last one really played up the colorful setting and playful tone, the new video offers a much better look at the destruction the greedy Once-ler (voiced by Ed Helms) hath wrought. Seriously, the Once-ler seems to live in some Seuss-ified version of the bleak post-apocalyptic landscape from The Road.

Based on a classic children’s book by Dr. Seuss, the film sees a young boy named Ted (voiced by Zac Efron) who sets out to learn the true story of how the Once-ler came to trash the Truffula trees over the warnings of the righteous, if slightly annoying, Lorax (Danny DeVito). Watch the new trailer after the jump.
