Long thought to be dead....Anchorman 2 came roaring back to life last night says ABC News.
Will Ferrell appeared on Conan O'Brien’s light night talk show in character as Ron Burgundy on Wednesday and made the announcement on the air:
“I want to announce this to all of our friends in the Americas, Spain, Turkey and the U.K. — including England — that as of 0900 mountain time, Paramount Pictures and myself … have come to terms on a sequel to ‘Anchorman'. There will be a sequel.”
Ferrell’s co-stars Steve Carell and Paul Rudd will also return to reprise their roles from Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy the dim-witted, lamp loving Brick Tamland and fashionable lead field reporter Brian Fantana.
Adam McKay is back to direct and he and Ferrell will pen the script for the film.
