Anchorman 2 announced
It’s hard to believe that it’s been eight years since Anchorman: the Legend of Ron Burgundy hit cinemas and now, just as the near constant quoting was getting old, a sequel is announced.
Will Ferrell made a surprise appearance on the Conan O’Brien show, as Ron Burgundy, where he announced that the long awaited sequel was finally on its way. Over the years, Ferrell has expressed interest in making a sequel to the hit comedy, but he didn’t own the rights and was unable to get the studio to agree, until now.
However, this may not be a good thing. Fans have been waiting for this ever since the credits rolled on number one, so expectations are going to be pretty high. Some of the best films around are great because they were allowed to stand alone, a sequel would have ruined them. That’s not to say all sequels are bad, and this one could be great, but knowing when to stop is a trait that far few people in Hollywood seem to have.
As someone that enjoyed the first movie and has been listening to quotes from it for years, I do hope, particularly for the people who really love this film, that the sequel lives up to their, undoubtedly high, expectation.
What do you think? Are you happy they are finally making the sequel? Do you think that it will live up to the original? Do you annoy your friends by quoting the movie at least once an hour?
