Breaking News: ANCHORMAN 2 Is Happening!

By the beard of Zeus!

The story just broke a few minutes ago over at Deadline, but the Hollywood gossip site is stating that a deal came together today greenlighting the long hoped for (by me at least) sequel to Will Farrell’s 2004 comedy Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy. Reportedly, Ferrell will be joined by at least castmates Steve Carell and Paul Rudd and director/screenwriter Adam McKay. There are no other details as of yet, though I expect that we should get them when Paramount officially announces the project in the next couple of days.

Ferrell confirmed the news during the taping of this evening’s Conan.

Ferrell has been trying to get an Anchorman sequel off the ground for several years and it looked like it was actually dead last May. But I guess you just can’t keep a good local anchor down.
