In a recent interview with Digitalspy.com, Steve Carell talked about the recently-released Anchorman 2 trailer and why he wants to keep plot details of the upcoming comedy a secret from fans. Check out the video below!
"I think it'll be really funny," explained the actor. "I don't want to go into it too much because it's still a ways down the road, but suffice to say it was very fun to film."
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is slated for release on December 20, 2013. Directed by Adam McKay and produced by Judd Apatow, the film is a sequel to the 2004 film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
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.
The movie recently signed up Harrison Ford for a role, rumors are that Meryl Streep might be making a cameo, and Kristen Wiig, Dylan Baker and Meagan Good joining the cast.
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.
