Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner in the new cover photo for Anchorman 2
In what is probably the most anticipated comedy of the year, ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES (click the link to watch the trailer) is striking as the perfect counter programming during the peak of the movie awards season. In fact, Entertainment Weekly has chosen to give Will Ferrell as Ron Burgandy and his San Diego news team the distinct honor of a cover photo, over the likes of many Oscar caliber type films. I for one am excited to see the guys back in action as the original continues to get funnier with age.
Directed by Adam McKay, ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES will star: Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, James Marsden, Kristen Wiig, Christina Applegate, Megan Good, Luke Wilson, David Koechner and Harrison Ford, along with numerous celebrity guest cameos. It opens in theaters on December 20th, 2013. The official synopsis for ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES: With the 70′s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), returns to the news desk in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.” Also back for more are Ron’s co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), weather man Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), man on the street Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner) – All of whom won’t make it easy to stay classy…while taking New York’s first 24-hour news channel by storm.
