It still hasn’t completely sunk in that Anchorman 2 is becoming a reality. Granted, we probably won’t see it until late 2013 at the earliest, but after waiting this long for the return of the Channel 4 News Team, I can wait a little bit longer. Considering the genius of the first movie, I’m game for whatever co-writer and director Adam McKay has in store for the sequel, and now he’s dropped a couple of brief hints on what we can possibly expect to see in Ron Burgundy’s next adventure.
Hit the jump for what McKay had to say about Anchorman 2, which is scheduled to begin shooting in February. [Update: THR reports that the movie is budgeted at $50 million (the first film cost $26 million), and Paramount is considering release dates ranging from Christmas 2013 to summer 2014. The sequel will also be a period piece like the original, but McKay wouldn't say what period.]
