Update: 'Anchorman 2' Officially a Go with Will Ferrell, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd All Returning, Now With Announcement Video
Mar 29, 2012
We can expect a formal announcement tonight on the Conan O' Brien Show, but for the hardcore movie geeks who can't wait, here's some wonderful news:
Anchorman 2 is officially greenlit at Paramount. Director / co-writer Adam McKay is returning, as are Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, and Paul Rudd. That's all we know (via Deadline) at this point, but perhaps we can all watch Conan tonight together.
To those who have never seen Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, well, you're insane and you hate laughter, but also this: it was a big, fat hit, it remains one of Will Ferrell's most beloved features, and (as you'll see below) it's one of the most amusingly quote-worthy comedies of the last twenty years. Fingers crossed that the creative team can find new ways to keep the magic flowing in Part 2 -- especially if they're planning to tackle the kooky early '80s.
