“Anchorman 2” set to roll in 2011

By Staff

Get ready to grow your hair long and throw litter on the ground, because director Adam McKay and his leading man Will Ferrell are bringing the gang back together for “Anchorman 2.”

“Sweet Eli Whitney’s nose,” as Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy character would exclaim.

Filming is to start in February 2011 for the 2004 sequel which featured Ferrell as a sexual harassing TV anchor who enjoyed getting the goat of his blonde female co-worker played by Christina Applegate.

McKay, who also wrote the first installment, spoke to MTV per Digital Spy. Steve Carell who played a bumbling co-anchor, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Applegate have all signed up.

Said McKay “Graciously, Steve and Paul 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.

“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.”

McKay and Ferrell have another comedy this summer “The Other Guys.”
