Adam McKay Talks Anchorman 2

( 4UMF NEWS ) Adam McKay Talks Anchorman 2:

Here’s an “afternoon delight” for those patiently waiting for the return of Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 Evening News Team.

In a recent interview with Salon magazine, director Adam McKay spilled some intriguing details about the upcoming and long-awaited sequel to 2004’s “Anchorman.”

“I don’t want to give away too much, but I’ll just give a couple pieces of ideas that we’ve kicked around,” said the comedy veteran. “Keep in mind we’re still writing the story, but I’ll say one phrase for you: custody battle. I’ll give you that. I’ll give you one other one: bowling for dollars.”

McKay’s hints are about as mysterious as “the legend” Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) himself, who appeared on “Conan” in March dressed as the faux newsman to announce that a deal with Paramount had finally been reached for the hit film’s sequel.

Don’t act like you’re not impressed, this is kind of a big deal.

Despite the 2004 comedy’s cult-like following and designation as one of the most quotable comedies in history, the creators faced an uphill battle in making the sequel a box-office reality.

“Anchorman 2” was continuously shot down by Paramount executives over budgetary reasons because the studio did not want to spend more than $35 million considering the relatively low-end global grosses of the first film. While the comedy experienced DVD and cable success, it was not as successful overseas.

Now that it’s been eight years since “Anchorman” hit the big-screen, can Ron Burgundy and his news team still make the American public as giddy?

“It’s crazy — ‘Anchorman’ is a movie that certainly fit the time when it came out and every year it gets more and more relevant,” said McKay. “Part of what inspired the movie was just how ridiculous the news had become.”

Steve Carell, David Koechner and Vince Vaughn are also reportedly set to reprise their roles.
