As previously reported by BWW, Anchorman: The Legend Continues will feature choreographed musical numbers. The comedy will once again star Will Ferrell as news anchorman Ron Burgundy. Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner and Christina Applegate will also star. The first film was released by DreamWorks in 2004 and grossed more than $91 million worldwide at the box office.

Adam McKay, the project's director, explained to The Playlist, "There will be some music in Anchorman 2 for sure. We have some songs already written. We were going to do Anchorman 2 as a Broadway musical first, for like six months and then go shoot the movie. That was our initial idea."

The sequel to the 2004 smash hit comedy will center on "how round the clock news has impacted the San Diego-based broadcasting team." The director revealed that he intends to convey a serious message in his story, in addition to the anticipated jokes. "Even though it's going to be a big silly movie, it's all about the rise of the new media and 24 hour news cycle, and there's a lot of interesting points to make," he added. "It's just funny that Americans have to contend with 2000 channels, and 60 different specific news sources, and the confusion that it creates, and the junk that we get to see is hilarious."

Anchorman 2 is produced by Judd Apatow and Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions.
