Anchorman 3: "definitely no"
Director Adam McKay rules out a third Anchorman movie...
It took a long time for people who greenlight movies for a living to give the nod to last year's Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Turns out, after all the umming and aahing, that the film has proven to be a solid hit for Paramount. So much so that a new cut arrives in cinemas today for a week, with more jokes added in.
However, if you're thinking of starting a campaign for Anchorman 3, it's probably best not to bother. Chatting to Empire, director Adam McKay has ruled out returning to the land of Ron Burgundy again.
He said "that’s the last sequel we’re gonna do. There’s nothing more fun to me than new characters and a new world. And now we’re releasing this alt version, we’re totally satisfied. No Anchorman 3. I’m going to say definitely no. I’ll actually say it in this case!".
Anchorman 2, incidentally, arrives on DVD and Blu-ray at the end of April.
