The director has been ecstatic ever since the launch of the trailer and wanted to come to India to watch the film with the team here. However, since he is currently busy with his next film in L.A., the makers are planning to keep a screening for him there.
The official spokesperson of the film confirms the news saying,

After shooting down the possibility of sequels to Elf, Night at the Roxbury and Old School, Ferrell was asked whether he is keen on revisiting any of his past films, responding that: “We talked a little bit about Step Brothers and… so who knows. At the same time, you like to create new things.”
A sequel to Step Brothers has been rumoured for many years now, although back in February Ferrell seemed to rule out the possibility, stating that: “You have to resist the temptation. It’s just tough because the things everyone wants you to do sequels of are special because there’s not a sequel of it. I guess we’ll see, but as
Will Ferrell was recently on Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen to promote The House. During the after show, Ferrell was asked by a fan about the possibility of a sequel for Elf and A Night at the Roxbury.
After the actor also replied in the negative to “Old School,” Cohen asked whether there’s any movie Ferrell would like to see get a follow-up. He rubbed his chin for a bit before finally responding, “I’d love to see a sequel of ‘Kramer vs. Kramer.'”

After learning that the scholarship that was going to send their daughter to college no longer exists, the happily married couple played by Ferrell and Poehler do what any caring parents would do: start an illegal casino in their friend’s (Jason Mantzoukas) house. That most of the patrons they aim to get rich off of are their neighbors and friends never seems to be an issue, nor is it the source of either comedy or tension.

With serialized TV shows, control needs to be in the hands of writers and showrunners. That’s because the story is still unfolding and the production is built from episode to episode. The director can’t be the principal storyteller, which makes it challenging to put a premium on visual storytelling.

Those who run the Marvel Cinematic Universe might sympathize. When it launched in 2008, their choices of directors seemed like head scratchers for a big action film. In retrospect, they make perfect sense.
“Swingers” writer and “Elf” director Jon Favreau was the perfect choice to improv with Robert Downey Jr. (remember, he wasn’t a star then
By now, the current series’ reputation most certainly precedes it and many of you are no doubt aware of the show that featured John Wesley Shipp as the lead, which aired nearly three decades ago. But what you may not have heard about was when the now defunct WB network tried to bring the Scarlet Speedster to television back in 2003.
At that time, Smallville was still in its infancy and, while it’s fairly well known that those working in WB’s TV division were so close to bringing an Aquaman spinoff to fruition – and later Justice League, believe it or not – there were other DC properties they had their eye on, namely The Flash. In fact, Daily Variety broke the story the very same day Christian Bale was announced as having been cast as Batman.
Basically, Todd Komarnicki (Resistance, Elf) was tasked with writing and executive producing this drastically different take on the iconic hero that’d have seen him as a citizen of Gotham City who was fresh out of college. What’s more is that he wouldn’t have worn any type of slick costume, mirroring Smallville’s “no tights, no flights” mandate. These days, many would scoff at such a notion, but it’s important to remember that when this project was taking off, superheroes weren’t yet fully considered cool in the eyes of the mainstream (I’d argue that our current Golden Age didn’t kickoff until 2008 with the releases of The Dark Knight and Iron Man.)
Komarnicki had this to offer before the endeavor hit a dead end:
“This is a story about a guy who’s aimlessly drifting through life and barely moving at the speed of life when he discovers his calling is to move at the speed of light.”
What remains unclear to this day is who’d have taken on the mantle, be it Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, Wally West, or Bart Allen. Based on what WB’s Carolyn Bernstein had to say though, it may have been one of the younger iterations:
“It’s a big, fun, adventure series. There’s also a mentor character who’ll train him, and there’s a legacy of Flashes before him.”
While it’s fun to ponder what could have been – also because time travel would’ve been a core element – it’s for the best this never took off because we would’ve never seen Smallville’s version of The Flash (Bart Allen), who was the first major DC hero to guest star on that series. Furthermore, the dominoes leading to the Arrowverse as we know it today likely wouldn’t have fallen, either.
Ferrell talked about celebs who have expressed their admiration for his films in a recent Facebook Live interview with EW, and shared the flattering comment he received from Pitt. Ferrell and Pitt both lent their voices to 2010's Megamind.
