Will Ferrell announced at the end of March that Anchorman 2 was officially happening, but the story line for the movie hasn’t quite taken shape yet, says director and co-writer Adam McKay. “I don’t want to give away too much,” he tells Salon. “Keep in mind we’re still writing the story, but I’ll say one phrase for you: custody battle.” Aw, here’s hoping it’s a non-obvious split, like Brick Tamland and Champ battling over custody of a dog or something, and not Veronica and Ron slugging it out. “I’ll give you one other one,” McKay says. “Bowling for dollars.” Well, that we can all unequivocally get behind.
