Anchorman 2 to Take Place in 1978, Feature Another Big Ol’ Fight


Adam McKay continues to deliver tiny morsels of info on the upcoming Anchorman sequel. They aren’t too far along, with McKay saying that they’ve got “about two per cent! Half a per cent? We’ve got five pages of story notes and chunks of story.” But they do have some of the basics nailed down: the movie will take place in either 1978 or 1979, when “all of a sudden, local news stations diversified and had Latino anchors and African-American anchors, and any time you’re talking about diversity and the Action News team, that’s always fun to deal with.” I agree!

McKay also mentions that they’ve got a couple of ideas bouncing around for another epic brawl, which is something that’s as important to bring back as Ron Burgandy’s moustache. Keep up the good work, fellows.
