Adam McKay Wants to Release an Alternate Cut of ‘Anchorman 2’ With All New Jokes

By

Director Adam McKay tells Empire there was so much improvisation on the set of his upcoming movie, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, that he wants to release an alternate cut of the film in theaters with the whole thing comprised of entirely new jokes that weren’t in the regular version.

Here’s what McKay had to say:

We did so much improv on this one that we can literally replace every single joke in the movie and put in alt scenes and alt improv runs. I think the editor’s working on it right now, with 250 new jokes. I think it would be really funny to put it in theatres for midnight showings. I know that I personally, if I loved a movie and someone told me that, like if Airplane! had been released with all-new jokes, I’d be like, ‘you’ve got to be fucking kidding me!’ I’d see it in a second.
