Teaser Poster for Anchorman: The Legend Continues
Posted 05.16.12 by Ryan
While co-writer and director Adam McKay made it clear last month that progress on a sequel to 2004's Anchorman was at a stage where he and Will Ferrell will be "holing up writing for the next three months," a new teaser poster is already available online.
Seems that Paramount Pictures is finally getting caught up in the excitement after McKay and Ferrell spent years trying to convince the studio to greenlight the sequel, now titled Anchorman: The Legend Continues. It was only this March when Ferrell appeared as Ron Burgundy on Conan to announce that the sequel was official. Clearly response from fans has been substantial, because Paramount then released a teaser trailer running prior to showings of The Dictator.
As for what might happen to San Diego's Action4 News team in the sequel, McKay also said that it will take place a few years after the original and will see the team dealing with more changes, particularly diversity. "In '78 or '79.... All of a sudden, local news stations diversified and had Latino anchors and African-American anchors," said McKay a few weeks ago. "And any time you're talking about diversity and the Action News team, that's always fun to deal with."
McKay also revealed that production would likely start "in February," with the sequel possibly being released by winter 2013 or summer 2014.
