Looks like Ron and the gang might be back soon for more Anchorman fun!
Oh Ron, what will come of you nowwwwwwwwwwwww?!?
Second consecutive reply on my own thread (I’m on a post binge):
Director Adam McKay said that the never-to-be sequel was going to be a musical! Or maybe he’s just yanking our collective chain.
If true though, I’m kinda glad it didn’t happen. I’ve got nothing against musicals (as some of you judgingly know…), but I feel it could have spoilt my appreciation of the classic antics of Ron and co.
Sounds like he may have been joking. I can’t really see them doing a Broadway stint (especially with the cast being as expensive as they are). I agree with you about the the musical version not sounding too good though (although less so about not having anything against musicals. Maybe if everyone stopped breaking into song I might enjoy them more).
I finally just got round to watching the piecemeal ‘alternate’ Anchorman: Wake Up, Ron Burgundy. It’s basically 90 mins of extra footage they shot during Anchorman but didn’t use - some of it is just the same scenes with the actors riffing different jokes, but the main difference is that it centres around an alternate subplot about a group of radicals who hate the news and try to take Channel 4 down (as opposed to the panda bear pregnancy). It’s subtitled ‘The Lost Movie’, and is pitched mostly as a follow-on to the first using lots of contrived narration. Doesn’t really work as a sequel as there are far too many parallels, but still an enjoyable evening in with Ron and the gang
