More On Anchorman 2!

| Filed under: Film FlickersSteve CarellChristina ApplegateWill FerrellPaul Rudd


We've gotta see this happen!

Writer/director Adam McKay talked about the possibility of a sequel to the popular Anchorman, but there are some obstacles they would have to overcome. He explains:

"It's a tricky movie because everyone went and did really well after it, so everyone's prices went up and everyone's time got a little more valuable. But at the same time, graciously, Steve [Carell] and Paul [Rudd] and everyone agreed to cut their price to come and do [the sequel], which you don't see very often in Hollywood — and cut their price substantially. But even with that, it's just a budgetary thing with Paramount in terms of how much they'll give us to make it.

"We had an idea and we contacted Steve and Paul and [David] Koechner and Christina [Applegate] and checked in with everyone and they were all game for it. The stage we're at now is talking to Paramount and trying to get the money to do it."


Paramount would be stupid to pass this up considering how well the first one did. So what would the premise be for the second one? McKay answers:

"[The '80s angle is] more the frame of it. We have this other, bigger, crazier idea that's really more what it's about, which I can't say. Our thinking was there's just no way the second one is going to be as good as the first, because the first one is the first one.

"So our idea is if we're going to do a second one, we better go for it and try some insane stuff and we'll be enjoying it and that way it can't be half bad."

Love it!

    YES!! because the only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show.

    So unnecessary.

    Honestly? NO! I just saw Anchorman for the first time this last weekend and without a doubt, it was the WORST movie I have ever seen in my life; and I usually love movies by the cast who were in the original. There were parts that were so cringe-tastic, I had to actually turn away from the video. I felt sorry for the actors that they had such a pathetic vehicle. Anchorman is no Talladega Nights!!!!! And, Ron Burgundy is no Ricky Bobby! YUCK!

    The first one was awful. Does the world really need another?

    Not happening. Ferrell burned so much cash on that dinosaur pix that the smell is still on him.

    Hell yeah! I just hope that if the sequel is greenlighted, they don't fuck it up, the original is a classic.

  12. 12

    YES please.

    Anchorman is classic. You can't repeat such an amazing movie like that. It's one of my favourites just because it's so raunchy, but making a sequel will be a horror scene. There can never be a second gun show. Once it's done, it's done.
