inTIMidator March 28, 2012

After years of rumors and online chatter, San Diego’s favorite Anchorman, Ron Burgundy, is coming back!

Appearing in character, Will Ferrel made a surprise appearance at Conan O’Brien’s TBS talk show.  After a dazzling flute solo and some insulting banter with O’Brien, and sidekick Andy Richter, he made the follow announcement:

I want to announce this to all of our friends in the Americas, Spain, Turkey and the U.K. — including England — that as of 0900 mountain time, Paramount pictures and myself … have come to terms on a sequel to ‘Anchorman.’ - Ron Burgundy

Ferrel and the rest of the Action 4 News Team, including Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) and Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), are slated to return.  However Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) and Champ Kind (David Koechner) still have yet to sign on to the project, but we have faith that they too will want to join the party soon.

The epic 1970′s sequel, still yet to be titled, will begin filming later this year with a projected release planned for 2013.
