Seems the wheels-are-a-turning on that oft-mentioned â€œAnchormanâ€ sequel.
Last time he was in the country (promoting “Step Brothers”), Will Ferrell told Moviehole he was â€˜consideringâ€™ doing a sequel to the reporter spoof (something you never wanna get on ya â€“ ask Pat Oâ€™Brien’s dates) â€œAnchormanâ€ â€“ pending script and, er, mustache approval.
This week, Ferrellâ€™s back in the country (not that weâ€™d know it had I not installed one of those funky â€˜wirelessâ€™ devices in my car dash â€“ we unfortunately didnâ€™t get to catch up with ol jollyâ€™ pal! I’m sure he’s as bummed as we are) promoting â€œLand of the Lostâ€, and the most common question heâ€™s been asked (besides â€œWhy?â€ in regards to the ”Lost” redo) is whether or not thereâ€™s any movement on the â€œAnchormanâ€ sequel.
Well, seems there is. Ferrell told radioâ€™s Jono & Dano this morning that everyone â€œis meeting next weekâ€ to discuss the film. Ferrell joked that the meetingâ€™s mainly to suss out whether or not Paul Rudd and Steve Carell are prepared to take pay cuts, because he sure isnâ€™t. Either way, they’re meeting next week to finalize everything.
Sounds like itâ€™s all coming together – and a trade announcement is only around the corner. Ron Burgundy could back on the air within the next year or two.
