Those Masters-of-The-Evening-News are back for another round in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and their hair is perfect, just like Prince Adam’s. The main cast returns with the notable additions of Kristen Wiig, Harrison Ford, and Megan Good. There are also a ton of cameos too long to list.
It’s all there, the over the top humor, the stylish hair and clothes, and OH YEAH, the news. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues hits theater screens on December 20th, 2013.
Paramount Pictures announced today the addition of Harrison Ford to the cast of Will Ferrell‘s long awaited Anchorman 2. Ford will play a legendary newscaster (Think Tom Brokaw or Dan Rather) in the comedy. Ford’s got a lot on his plate after wrapping up shooting on Ender’s Game, he’ll be reprising his role as Han Solo in whatever Star Wars movie the franchise gets going, and if Ender’s Game is a hit there’s the distinct possibility of a couple more movies in that franchise.
Can Ford stand up to the comedic skills of his fellow cast mates? Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate, David Koechner, and Kristen Wiig are certainly going to bring their comedic “A” game to the movie. The sequel should be just as wacky as the original with Ferrell and McKay having written the screenplay.
The plot details on Anchorman 2 are still unclear and no one on the production is talking or even hinting at what the story might entail. I’m sure there will be lots of national news programs getting roasted and there could be a number of news people cameos peppered throughout the film.
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
