Will Ferrell has given hope to millions after seemingly not ruling out a 'Step Brothers' sequel.

The 49-year-old appeared on 'Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen' when a fan rang up to ask whether or not there would be an 'Elf' sequel.

As you can see from the video above, Ferrell says: "I've got great news for you! No."

Understandably, the audience were gutted. Although, I have to admit, that was a beautiful example of real life trolling because I was 100 percent convinced he was about to announce the second movie.

Andy then asked whether or not there were any other films that he'd like to star in for a sequel. Ferrell said: "We talked a little bit about Step Brothers...

"So who knows? But, at the same time, you like to create new things."

Back in 2013, 'Step Brothers' co-star, Adam McKay, said: "We have a whole story, an outline, that we're happy with. We were ready to go, and you know the story of [how] we got the call on Anchorman 2. We're not gonna do it now, 'cause we just did a sequel, I don't wanna get into the sequel business too much. It was kind of a novelty to do one of them and it was certainly very interesting and I had never done anything like it.

"So I want to go make some original movies - or you know, The Big Short is an adaptation but do some different stuff. But who knows? Two to three years, three to four years. I mean the funny thing with 'Step Brothers' is if those guys are in their fifties it still works, so we could easily return to that, but for now no sequels."

Looks like they've definitely chatted more since that conversation.

Ferrell also explained that in his new movie, 'The House', Mariah Carey was meant to have a cameo, but it was a 'shit storm'.

She reportedly demanded to sing a song that had not been approved, arrived on set four hours late, and proposed several script alterations. Ferrell explained: "One script note was like, 'I don't want to do the scene'. Even though it was totally approved ahead of time."

Ferrell couldn't remember how long it took for the staff to realise that her cameo was going to be cut, but he said: "At 11pm there was a knock on my trailer door and they said, 'You can go home'. I got in my car and left everyone on set."

Carey also reportedly demanded that 'stuffed lambs' were placed inside her trailer, as well as 'all white roses'. Well, I guess if you want a diva to star in your movie, you should probably expect diva behaviour.
