Anchorman is one of the best comedies of the past 25 years. Will Ferrell, who is regarded by many as one of the funniest men in comedy, turned the character of San Diego news anchorman Ron Burgundy into a cult classic icon. I myself, quote the legend that is Ron Burgunday on a daily basis. A sequel to the 2004 comedy has long been rumored, it never emerged… until now.
That’s right, Anchorman 2 is on it’s way! Ron and the KVWN-TV Channel 4 Evening News team will assemble once again.
Here’s a clip of Will, in his Ron persona, making the announcement on the Conan O’Brien show:
Now, before you start laying on the Sex Panther and perfecting your best “I’m Ron Burgundy?” this is just in the development stages right now. But, they now have Adam McKay (of the original Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Step Brothers and The Other Guys) set to write and direct. The script, which has been tossed around for years, was finished by McKay and Will Ferrell, who will return to star as Ron Burgundy, of course, along with Steve Carell and Paul Rudd from 04’s Anchorman
