‘Real work’ begins on Anchorman 2

April 11th, 2012 by bash Comments

Following news recently that Anchorman 2 is being made after a TV performance by Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) himself, director Adam McKay has spoken about what fans can expect when the sequel returns to the big screen.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, he said: “We’re going to start [writing the script] next week actually. We’re going to hole up… Usually in a month and a half to two months we can come up with the full draft, like a rough vomit-y draft. Then, you know how it goes, the real work is in the re-writing, so then we just pound it for the next five months.”

Talking about the return of Christina Applegate, he continued: “[W]e have an idea for her that we think is pretty cool. So tentatively right now she’s in. But obviously we kind of have to let it be what it’s gonna be. We don’t want to handcuff ourselves, but we love Applegate, so any chance to work with her is always fun.”

The current plan is to begin shooting the sequel in February of 2013 with a release planned for March 2014.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
