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. Jeff Sneider claims Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner will reprise their respective characters, though there’s no word on Christina Applegate just yet.
