Will Ferrell confirms he's making 'Anchorman' sequel
The big news all around the moviewebs this week is word that there will be a sequel to Will Ferrell's Anchorman. Where did we hear such a vicious rumor? Straight from the horse's mouth, natch.
"I want to announce this to everyone here in the Americas, to our friends in Spain, Turkey and the U.K. -- including England -- that as of 0900 mountain time, Paramount Pictures and myself, Ronald Joseph Aaron Burgundy, have come to terms on a sequel to Anchorman," Ferrell said on Conan O'Brien's TBS talk show Wednesday night. Nobody continued watching the show after that point, because they were calling and texting all their friends.
If the 2004 movie's principal cast returns, it's sure to be much more expensive to make than is was back then. Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate, Chris Parnell and even Fred Willard are all having much better careers at this point. Good thing the original made $91 million.
