As you might have already heard, glory be to the heavens above, we will be getting an Anchorman sequel!
Will Ferrell announced it last night on Conan, in his own delightful fashion…after a jazz flute solo:
“I want to announce this to everyone here in the Americas, to our friends in Spain, Turkey and the U.K. — including England — that as of 0900 mountain time, Paramount Pictures and myself, Ronald Joseph Aaron Burgundy, have come to terms on a sequel to Anchorman.”
Anchorman, while wildly all over the place, is easily one of the funniest movies in the past 10 years. It was also a pretty successful out, grossing $91 million worldwide. Luckily, the Hollywood Reporter tells us that both Steve Carell and Paul Rudd will be in the sequel as well.
I don’t think this movie can come out soon enough. But to tide us over…
