Adam McKay says fan support may give us an Anchorman sequel

09.09.2010

The Anchorman sequel has died and come back to life so many times, I'm almost getting sick of hearing about it at this point, but here's one more swing back toward "life," in case you're really clamoring for another go-round of Ron Burgundy and co.

"[Fan outcry] made a difference. Paramount heard it. Adam Goodman, the President of Paramount, was on the first one so he loves it and when that outcry came, he was kind of excited because he knew it could maybe push it towards happening. That having been said, I'm clearly going into it like another movie so if it does happen it's still two years away or a ways away. And I haven't talked to anyone. There's nothing happening right now but it helped, it helped."

That's right, YOU are responsible for the fact the studio is even considering an ANCHORMAN sequel again. I'm not sure where or when or why this outcry took place, but I guess some studio exec must read our Strikes Back section, as most of you seem to be in support of a sequel.

I never did understand why both ANCHORMAN and ZOOLANDER never got sequels, both seemed ripe for them, and it could have been at the very least a lot of easy money for the studio. But the longer they wait, interest will keep fading, and in two years I think the "outcry" will be even more faint in ANCHORMAN's case.

I remember seeing the trailer for Anchorman playing in the lobby of one of my local theaters. At the time I didn't think too much of it, but then I saw it on dvd. The movie was one of Will's best! I really hope a sequel gets made if the original cast returns!

I love Anchorman. It's a classic. But making a sequel is just a terrible idea.

If you make it, they will come.

I will at least. That's right Paramount, I'm willing to give you more of my money so MAKE IT HAPPEN!

I can't really think of any really "great" comedy sequels. They either suck, or are just ok but not as good as the first. I'm perfectly fine without a sequel to Anchorman.

Anchorman is a comedy masterpiece, whether a sequel is necessary is up for discussion but I'm not saying it's a bad idea. I would definitely go and see it.

Extra Tidbit Response

i always was puzzled that there was going to be a hangover 2. When i saw the movie for the first time i thought could it be did i just see one of the funniest films of the year yet it was so under the radar in a way. At the end i didnt think or say hey theres going to be a second one or there needs to be a second. Because its not meant to be a sequel. its just gonna go over the limit on being just plain dumb and rediculous. why todd philipps? your so much better then this. who cares if your

I feel like hangover 2 would be similiar to Sex in the city 2. Anyone else get that vibe??

I can see your point and I do agree with most of your points but the whole SATC2 thing is a bit of a stretch as that was a blatant money-grabbing attempt but the Hangover 2, whilst not much better in that respect could add something and it could a great comedy film. I trust Todd Phillips to do a good job

Yeah, if it became a musical it would undermine all if the gravitas and stark life-like drama of a movie like Anchorman.

Oh wait. Anchorman is ridiculous, and a musical would fit perfectly. More's the better.

A musical?

I read about this in a couple of different places, but I hope it's not true, but I heard that the sequel would be a MUSICAL??!?! If that's true, I'd rather they did NOT make it. It's bad enough that we have to sit through Seth McFarlane's "ode to Broadway" on every other episode of the FAMILY GUY, I want my ANCHORMAN sequel as a _movie_, not a musical!

I dream of one day catching a double bill of Anchorman 2 and Arrested Development: The Movie.

As much as I want this sequel to happen, its not going to happen. This is like fans begging Marvel to bring Norton back and still didn't happen. Oh well

This sequel needs to happen. This would be a sequel that would be good and would be worth spending $10 on. If everyone is on board and willing to take a pay cut so said movie could get made, then I don't see what the problem is. With all the die hard fans, this movie would make bank very easily.
