Today, Paramount has released the first teaser poster for Anchorman: The Legend Continues, starring Will Ferrell.
After much delay and doubt as to whether it would ever go into production, the sequel to the 2004 comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is finally picking up steam.
The teaser poster, though it doesn’t show much, presumably features the legs of its four stars, Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner.
Plot details aren’t crystal clear yet but director Adam McKay has stated before that it will take place during the era of the 24-hours news cycle.
“It’s right when all the news started changing with the 24-hours news cycle in ’78 or ’79. All of a sudden, local news stations diversified and had Latino anchors and African-American anchors, and any time you’re talking about diversity and the Action News team, that’s always fun to deal with. We know these guys never deal well with change, and the good thing is that there’s a big blast of change coming, according to the regular timeline. We’re going to be throwing a lot of innovation at them, and they’re not going to handle it well.”
Check out the poster below and be sure to catch The Dictator in theatres this weekend as a teaser trailer for Anchorman: The Legend Continues will play before it.
