Great Odin’s raven! There were whispers that Will Ferrell would stop by Conan to make some sort of special announcement — I, initially, didn’t have the proper curiosity to even care — but this news is, well, Earth-shattering. Appearing on stage in the guise of his greatest character, Ron Burgundy, Ferrell announced to the world that Paramount and his people have come to terms and are finally moving forward with Anchorman 2.
Deadline gives some of the finer details, the primary being: Adam McKay is directing a script he co-wrote with Ferrell, while Judd Apatow will be producing.

What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
