Get your 2013 movie planning schedule out–we have a release date for “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” which we also fondly refer to as “Anchorman 2.” The date is December 20, 2013, so…wow, that’s exactly one year from today! Let the countdown begin!
We don’t know the exact storyline, but there’s been talk that it’s moved the timeline up from the 1970s to the early ’80s and the dawn of the 24 hour news channel. Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, David Koechner and Paul Rudd are definitely set to return to their roles from the first movie. There’s no word about other original cast members such as Christina Applegate, Fred Willard, Fred Armisen, Chris Parnell. Kristen Wiig has been rumored to be joining the cast as a love interest for Carell’s character.
