The return of Ron Burgundy is almost here and the new trailer for “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” proves it. Check out the trailer for the sequel to 2004′s “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” directed by original “Anchorman” director Adam McKay, with the full cast returning from Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner (“Whammy!”) and Christina Applegate reprising her role as female anchor Veronica Corningstone. Included in the trailer is some footage of Kristen Wiig as Brick Tamland’s love interest. No, she doesn’t play a lamp.
The forthcoming film apparently takes place during the advent of the 24-hour news cycle. McKay teased the sequel’s plot in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, stating: “I’ll tell you we’re staying roughly period, and I would just say it’s the next stage in the development of American media and news. The fun of these characters is they confront change very poorly.” We could have guessed that.
