According to the film’s writer/director Adam McKay, in the Anchorman sequel Ron Burgundy played by Will Ferrel and the Channel 4 news team will have to cope with some changes.
Adam McKay said “We know these guys never deal well with change, and the good thing is there’s a big blast of change coming. We’re going to be throwing a lot of innovation at them and they’re not going to handle it well.”
He also added “its right when all the news started changing with the 24-hours news cycle in 78 or 79. All of a sudden, local news stations diversified and had Latino anchors and African-American anchors, and any time you’re talking about diversity and the Action News team, that’s always fun to deal with.”
I’m extremely excited for this sequel not as much as I am for “The Hobbit”, but still, it’s been a while since the first came out and just the fact that a sequel is actually being made Is awesome! But sadly for fans such as myself, we will have to wait longer for Anchorman 2 since there hasn’t been much progress on the script, McKay said “We’ve done about two per cent! Half a per cent? We’ve got five pages of story notes and chunks of story. We’re holing up writing for the next three months.”
I don’t mind waiting; I just hope this sequel turns out to be great.
