Director Adam McKay has leaked some info on the highly-anticipated sequel to “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy”. For one, there’s going to be musical numbers. The director told Indiewire, “We were going to do ‘Anchorman 2’ as a Broadway musical first, for like six months and then go shoot the movie.”
NOTE: Will Ferrill sang ‘Afternoon Delight’ in “Anchorman”.
The director revealed that one big plot point will be the 24 hour news cycle. He says, “Even though it’s going to be a big silly movie, it’s all about the rise of the new media and 24 hour news cycle, and there’s a lot of interesting points to make about that while being silly.”
The film is currently scheduled to be released on December 31st, 2013.
