The Germans discovered it in 1904, and they called it ‘San Diego’, which in German means ‘whale’s vagina’.

Here’s a sequel I’d love to see, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. There are so many quotable lines and ridiculous scenarios that stick out from that movie. The 2004 cult classic starred Will Ferrell as Burgundy, a sexist, self-centered, and not too bright news anchor who leads the number one news team in the San Francisco Bay area. For years there have been rumblings of a possible sequel, but now according to some of its stars, things are beginning to look a lot more serious.

Some of Burgundy’s cohorts from the Channel 4 News Team included field reporter Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), sportscaster Champ Kind (David Koechner), weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), and co-anchor Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate). Over at /Film, they’ve given me hope that there may be a possible Anchorman 2 on the horizon, which means more comedy, but most importantly more poorly choreographed alley fights! While out promoting this summer’s Land of the Lost, Ferrell confirmed that everyone will be meeting next week to discuss the future of a sequel.

Director Adam McKay spoke about his interest in doing another Anchorman, while Paul Rudd divulged some sequel details surrounding the film’s setting. He said that “the movie might take place in the 1980′s or even the moon!” I’m sure that last line was a joke, but could you imagine those characters ten years later in the eighties?

What do you think of an Anchorman sequel?
