Ferrell Closing In On ‘Anchorman 2’

Will Ferrell is close to sealing a deal to revive his comedy news anchor character Ron Burgundy in a sequel to his hit 2004 movie Anchorman.

The funnyman is desperate to film a follow-up to Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and admits he has been in talks with movie bosses to bring the character back for a second run.

And Ferrell is convinced that he is close to getting a green light for the project.

He says, “The odds are good. We’re going to talk to all the guys next week — Steve CarellPaul Rudd and everybody else — to see if it’s feasible to do it, because everybody’s at different places right now, with totally different schedules.

“Hopefully we can start filming in a couple of years.”
