Remembering when you looked forward to Will Ferrell movies? It's tough to recall with all the layers of sports spoofs covering your memories with novelty wigs, but there was a time, at least for me, that Anchorman was semi-revered, and news of a sequel would bring about something akin to a smile. I'm not really sure how I feel about one anymore, but co-writer/director Adam McKay has now confirmed to Collider that one is definitely planned.
Adam McKay: I'm looking to do another movie, I might do this other movie called Channel 3 Billion which is kind of this science fiction/Brazil type comedy. Then after that, Will and I are like let's do Anchorman 2…so you're talking like 2 years maybe we'll do it. But we're going to do it, for sure.
Collider: That's like 100%?
Adam McKay: Yeah, yeah, yeah. We're dying to do it. Unless we can't get the cast together, which is always kind of a tricky thing. But, I think, with that cast we're all friends, so yeah, we want to do it.
I would have more to say on this, but I'm afraid I have to get to a Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian screening. Don't worry: I'll have a Bible on-hand to note all the intriguing parallels between Christ and Lion Neeson or whatever.
