What seemed literally impossible a mere two weeks ago is now a green-lit reality. After making an outlandish appearance on “Conan”, Will Ferrell, in his Ron Burgundy persona, announced the confirmation of Anchorman 2. Personally, I find this announcement a little bit abrupt and unexpected only because just a couple of weeks ago, Will Ferrell was talking about how the project was “pretty much dead”. I’m interested as to whether he intentionally lied about the certainty of the project, or was he as surprised as his fans to be able to negotiate the deal with Paramount.
Honestly, when I actually heard the announcement, a little kid in me started jumping and screaming with joy. Of course, I knew that it was going to happen judging from the title of the video and all the buzz beforehand, but actually hearing it was pretty exciting. With Anchorman being such a crucial component to my childhood, hearing about a sequel really, as Burgundy would put it, just rustled my Jimmies.
And Great Oden’s Raven! You can watch the video of Burgundy making his announcement right here:
