"We already have a couple of ideas for it," McKay said. And while he's been cagey about just what will happen to Ron Burgundy and this pals (likely because he hasn't written the thing out yet), so far we've been teased that it will revolve around a custody battle. Well, McKay does drop a few more hints about what changes on cable Ron will be facing.
"It's right when all the news started changing with the 24-hours news cycle in '78 or '79," McKay explains. "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."
Since we already known that Ron Burgundy does not handle change well, McKay adds this will throw him and the KVWN-TV gang for a further loop (and does this mean a return of Ben Stiller's Arturo Mendes?). And as awesome as this sounds, it's still a bit of a way off. Filming isn't slated to begin until early in 2013, with a possible Christmas release to follow, but a more likely spring or summer date in 2014. Patience for now. Until then, we'll be sharpening our tridents.
