Ever since the March announcement that Anchorman 2 was finally happening, fans have been waiting for any kind of preview of the long-awaited sequel. This week, we get two—teasers for the film have been attached to prints of The Dictator, and today, we have a teaser poster heralding the film, it’s new official title, and a loose release date. Check it out after the jump.
First off, the film is now no longer just Anchorman 2—you can call it Anchorman: The Legend Continues now. Further, while the film had been rumored for a 2014 release, the poster is pretty boldly proclaiming a 2013 release date.
As for the barest sketch of a plot, all we know is what we reported in April, when we noted that Anchorman and Anchorman: The Legend Continues writer-director Adam McKay noted the film would be set “when all the news started changing with the 24-hours news cycle in ’78 or ’79, 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.”
Also, it is known that Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner would be returning to reprise their roles, with no indication, however, if Christina Applegate would be returning for another round of madness.
Keep checking back for updates, including the Anchorman: The Legend Continues teaser trailer as soon as it’s available.
