Adam McKay kills any hopes of Anchorman 3
Knights of Columbus, this hurts!
According to Adam McKay, heís done with the world of Ron Burgundy and the rest of the news team.
When the director was asked about a possible third installment, this is what he had to say:
Itís done. I think thatís it. It was great to do it and it was so fun to work with those guys again, but I think thatís it for Ron Burgundy.
When ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES hit theaters, it actually didnít do too bad. Sales reached over $100 million in the US, and doubled worldwide. However, the second installment didnít seem to have the same spark that the first did in in 2004. Perhaps they waited too long? While I personally enjoyed it, like most sequels, it didnít quite measure up to what I had originally experienced after being first introduced to the characters. So if the money was there, a third film seems like the thing to do, right?
No, thatís the last sequel weíre gonna do. Thereís nothing more fun to me than new characters and a new world. And now weíre releasing this alt version, weíre totally satisfied. No Anchorman 3.
This also kills the idea of that STEP BROTHERS sequel; another film full of awesome quotes. Donít even expect to hear from Burgundy ten years down the line. McKay already nipped that one in the bud:
Iím going to say definitely no. Iíll actually say it in this case!Ē
Right now, Ron is probably uttering these wordsÖ
