With a new poster online and a teaser trailer reportedly attached to prints of The Dictator, we have further concrete evidence that the long-gestating sequel to Anchorman is indeed in the works (you’ll forgive us for being sceptical – we’ve been hurt too many times!).
There’s not much to the poster, besides the meticulously tailored pants on display. These legs presumably belong to the core members of the Channel 4 Action News Team: Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Champ Kind (David Koechner), and Brick Tamland (Steve Carell).
Scarily, it seems two of the members have lost one leg a piece. Perhaps from another Battle of the News Teams?
Paramount will distribute the Anchorman sequel (tentatively titled The Legend Continues?). Judd Apatow will produce, and Adam McKay will direct, as with the first instalment. It arrives in cinemas next year.
