Anchorman 2 Potential Plot WHAMMY – A Burgundy Baby!?

Anchorman is something I hold dear to my heart. Ask any of my college roommates (yes, I went to college) and they will tell you about the weekends where that movie was played over and over on loop. Come Friday evening (OK, Thursday morning) the Anchorman DVD would go in, and wouldn’t stop until Monday morning. Usually, we took out the Saturday Night Live Best of Will Ferrell DVD to put in Anchorman, so needless to say we are all well versed in the art and comedy of Will Ferrell. And I have said it before that I think Anchorman is one of the better comedies put out in a long time.

So I read an article just now on Salon.com, where co-writer/director Adam McKay talks about how Anchorman 2 was bounced around in the studios for a while, how the comedy and satire of Anchorman is more relevant now than ever, and how he stays creative. But the best little nugget of the article is where he talks about the potential plot ideas they are toying with for Anchorman 2. McKay goes on to say, “I don’t want to give away too much, but I’ll just give a couple pieces of ideas that we’ve kicked around. Keep in mind we’re still writing the story, but I’ll say one phrase for you: custody battle. I’ll give you that. I’ll give you one other one: bowling for dollars.”

This is music to my ears. Recently on the 04/01/12 show I told Paul that I hope they keep the story of Anchorman 2 simple because its the characters that make the movie funny not some crazy ass plot. And this sounds like it’s right up their alley for the Channel 4 News Team! I can see it now, Ron Burgundy and Veronica Corningstone, battling for little Ron or little Veronica. Throwing back and forth the same quips that brought us to tears last time such as “You are a smelly pirate hooker,” “Why don’t you go back to your home on Whore Island?” and “You’ve got a dirty whorish mouth.” Classic. That is love my friends, that is love.

I am not sure what the “bowling for dollars” reference is that McKayis talking about, but if it involves some sort of competition for the custody of Burgundy Jr., sign me up! This happens to be too perfect of timing for me also, just having watched the most recent episode of East Bound and Down. The episode finds Kenny Powers facing off once again against Ashley Schaeffer, this time for his son! What ties this all together you might ask? Oh I don’t know, maybe the fact that Ashley Schaeffer is played by Will Ferrell! And the fact that Will Ferrell is an executive producer! Oh, and the fact that Adam McKay is also an Executive producer and Directed a couple episodes in 2009! BOOM! I just hit your ass with some knowledge son! This particular episode was absolutely freaking hilarious. So to imagine throwing a kid in the works with the characters of Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 News Team, with McKay co-writing and directing just makes me really excited for this sequel. I have faith that they can pull it off. Plus, you know what they say about sequels… 60% of the time, they work every time.

You stay classy, Planet Earth.

By The Beard of Zeus! Anchorman 2!!

Ron Burgundy himself, without the use of cue cards, just made this announcement on Conan:

For so long it seemed a no-brainer that a sequel would be made to the 2004 hit Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.  After much stalling however, it had turned into a buried and dead project.  Will Ferrell, a long time champion of the character and film, seems to finally have talked Paramount Studios into … for just one more movie … being co-people.
