Ron Burgundy and his news team have gathered for a teaser trailer announcing to the world that Burgundy is back! Anchorman 2, a film fans have wanted ever since the first one became a cult classic, will be released in 2013.
Will Ferrell announced live on Conan O’Brien’s talk show that he and Paramount have agreed terms to make a sequel just last month. Ferrell, who appeared in character on O’Brien’s show, told the world it was definitely ‘film on’.
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is easily one of the most quoted cult classics of modern times. Where ever Ferrell went to promote a picture he got asked the same thing: will there be a sequel to Anchorman?
Director Adam MacKay will be returning to the director’s chair for the film along with Paul Rudd and Steve Carrell as Brian Fantana and Brick Tamland. Let’s hope David Koechner returns too. Will Christina Applegate also be making an appearance as the object of Burgundy’s desires, Veronica Corningstone? No doubt more information will work its way online in the near future. This is great news. Can’t wait. You stay classy San Diego.
