Anchorman 2 will take place in 1978 and face a new threat to the workplace

Channel 4 News Team, Assemble! Director Adam McKay has revealed who your new foe shall be!

In a recent interview with Empire, Adam McKay gave the most specific details yet on when ANCHORMAN 2 will take place and who Ron Burgundy and team will be vying against.

"We know these guys never deal well with change," says McKay, "and the good thing is that there's a big blast of change coming, according to the regular timeline. We're going to be throwing a lot of innovation at them, and they're not going to handle it well."

We all saw how well the Channel 4 team dealt with a woman in the workplace in the first film.  What will they have to deal with this time around?

"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."

McKay also revealed that they are about "two percent" of the way into the screenplay, which means a lot can change. He did promise that another epic gang fight will take place, With the large amount of improvisation done on the first film, we can expect that this film will go in a lot of wacky directions. One thing is for sure, every single tidbit on this movie will be posted on this site. ANCHORMAN is one of those movies that 50% of the time works 100% of the time.

Extra Tidbit: Add these cast members NOW: Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, John C Reilly, and Ed Helms.
