Steve Carell: There was a plan for an ‘Anchorman’ musical

HollywoodNews.com: With “Anchorman 2” not happening any time soon, Steve Carell had a solution: a Broadway version of the cult Will Ferrell comedy.

And Carell was set to star in it.

Carell who played goofy, innocent weatherman Brick Tamland in the 2004 film had backed plans by Ferrell and the film’s director Adam McKay to propel the project to stage.

“Adam McKay and Will – they had an idea… that we’d do it as a Broadway musical with the original cast,” Carell tells Digital Spy. “We would develop bits and things within the show. And then at the end of the Broadway run we would go shoot a movie. That was the idea.”

All of this was in an effort to persuade Paramount to greenlight a sequel.

However, at the moment, “Anchorman’s” path to the Great White Way is on hold.
