Adam McKay hints at the story for Anchorman 2
Director Adam McKay’s dropped a few clues about the story for the belated Ron Burgundy comeback movie, Anchorman 2…
This is little more than a new snippet, admittedly, but we had to share it with you anyway. After a lengthy hiatus, the world’s most famous preening news anchor, Ron Burgundy, is finally getting a second feature film. And as director and co-writer Adam McKay prepares to make the movie with Will Ferrell, he’s provided a few clues as to what its story might contain.
“I don’t want to give away too much,” McKay told Salon, “but I’ll just give a couple pieces of ideas that we’ve kicked around. Keep in mind we’re still writing the story, but I’ll say one phrase for you: custody battle. I’ll give you that. I’ll give you one other one: bowling for dollars.”
Bowling? Divorce settlements? It sounds like a cross between Kingpin and Kramer Vs Kramer, with the custody battle no doubt taking place between Burgundy and his co-anchor, Veronica Corningstone. If this is the case, I think we can look forward to more arguments and creative insults along the lines of the first film.
