Anchorman: The Legend Continues
It took nearly 10 years for a sequel to “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” to arrive. And it’s interesting to note, despite all the fan buzz, online news over the years and supposed clamoring for a sequel, “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” proved its cult status by only becoming a marginal box-office hit—the sequel only grossed $39.8 million more than its predecessor and capped out at $169 million worldwide.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
When Will Ferrell and Adam McKay get together, they shoot a lot of material. And as fans of "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy" already know, there was so much leftover material from the making of the comedy, the flimmakers were able to stitch together an entirely new movie, "Wake Up, Ron Burgudy: The Lost Movie," which was included as a DVD extra for the film. And, they've pretty much done the same thing again.

"Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" is in theaters now, and for the sake of spoilers, we'll just say this: it gets a little crazy, often leading to the sequel's best moments. But in the nearly decade-long road to bring the movie to the big screen, Adam McKay and Will Ferrell had a lot time to think about how they were going to approach the followup. And while the final result expands the canvas but still keeps Ron Burgundy as the central focus, an earlier concept was much more epic (and somewhat outlandish) in scope.

Anchorman 2
The campaign for "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" rolls on, permeating almost every pop culture sphere possible, and so this morning comes even more from the movie. But in this case, instead of Ron Burgundy shilling for products and commenting on TV shows, we have a couple scenes from the actual movie (and yes, Ron Burgundy shilling for products and commenting on TV shows too).

It's no secret that “Anchorman” represents an almost free-form comedic enterprise for director Adam McKay and Will Ferrell, able to shift and change form and purpose at will. Some are brilliant, like the alternate cut of the original, entitled “Wake Up Ron Burgundy”), some simply lackluster (the recent Dodge Durango tie-ins), but at least McKay and co. know their property. And as the sequel, “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” nears its release next month to hopefully calm our fears once and for all, McKay has recently revealed his next game-changing spin-off.

Anchorman 2
The release of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” is just over a month away, and by now, fans of the first movie know that it was a long and winding road for the sequel to even enter production. We all know the first “Anchorman” wasn’t exactly a runaway hit when it was first released in the summer of 2004, but it still made a healthy profit. Even after the movie encountered great success in DVD sales, as well as the McKay/Ferrell duo’s subsequent films each crossing the $100 million mark in the box office, there was still some considerable push-back from Paramount Pictures when it came to a possible "Anchorman" sequel. As co-writer/director Adam McKay puts it, the primary issue for this was the film’s proposed budget.

Anchorman 2, poster crop
If it's one thing we know about "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" director Adam McKay, it's that he shoots a lot of footage. There were so many alternate takes from the first 'Anchorman' that he cobbled together an entire second movie from the footage, entitled "Wake Up, Ron Burgundy" that was included in special two-packs with the original movie, and has joked that he shot more film for "Step Brothers" than Francis Ford Coppola did for "Apocalypse Now." But according to a new interview with Empire, McKay is planning an entire alternate version of "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" with completely new jokes. Plus: a brand new poster for the movie!

It was bound to happen: Ron Burgundy, the egotistical news anchor played by Will Ferrell in 2004's"Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" and this winter's "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," will have his own leather-bound book (undoubtedly smelling of rich mahogany). According to Rolling Stone, a new book supposedly authored by Burgundy will be out on November 19th. But that's not all: the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, which features Burgundy and his fellow newscasters on the cover, also offers some insight into the film's plot as well as revealing what would have been had the film come to fruition in its original form: as a lavish Broadway musical.

“We're talking about creating a murderer's row of the best day players ever for 'Anchorman 2,' ” director Adam McKay told The Playlist in an interview last year. “Like having every single one line or three line role, just be someone we just love -- just making sure every day player is a home run."

If you want to keep some of these surprises under wraps, then read no further. No really, *spoilers, spoilers ahead* (cue someone in the comments section saying this warning wasn’t enough).

While there has been much talk about "Anchorman 2" aka "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," details on the actual plot have seen somewhat vague and only really addressed in a broader sense of the thematic territory that will apparently find Ron Burgundy swimming in a bigger media arena than he was back in San Diego. But could a plot morsel served out pretty early on turn about to be right on the money?
