In case you forgot – back in December
we had a little chat about Kristen Wiig
and her possible involvement in the upcoming Anchorman: The Legend Continues
. Today, we’re here to say: it’s official, Wiig is definitely on board for the whole thing, and this news comes straight from director Adam McKay
McKay directs the sequel to the 2004 film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
from a script he co-wrote with Will Ferrell
, who is once again on board to play the title role – Ron Burgundy.
You know, the famous and successful (and funny) anchorman for San Diego’s KVWN-TV Channel 4 Evening News who says: You’re so wise. You’re like a miniature Buddha, covered in hair
Beside Ferrell, the original film also starred Christina Applegate
, David Koechner
, Fred Willard
, Fred Armisen
and Chris Parnell
The good thing is that they are all back for the sequel, as well as Steve Carell
and Paul Rudd
As for Kristen Wiig
, she is rumored to play a romantic interest to Carell’s character – a clueless weatherman Brick Tamland. And that, my friends, already sounds great, hope you agree?
Anchorman: The Legend Continues
is already set to open on December 20th, 2013.
In case you’ve missed the official teaser for the whole thing, here we go again:
