Adam McKay Reveals Anchorman 2 Plot Details
cinemablend.com has the story:
Anchorman 2: it’s happening, for real this time, after a splashy announcement from Will Ferrell on Conan and confirmation from all involved. We don’t yet know what it will be about, when it will come out or who will be in it beyond the major cast, since Adam McKay and Ferrell are still writing the script, and with those two involved pretty much anything can happen. But somewhat surprisingly, McKay was willing to talk about it a little anyway in a radio interview that was partially transcribed for Salon.
The interview as a whole is really interesting, with McKay delving a little into politics and how the parody of Anchorman becomes more and more realistic as TV news gets more shallow, but the Anchorman 2 hints are pretty short. Here’s the entire paragraph in question:
I don’t want to give away too much, but I’ll just give a couple pieces of ideas that we’ve kicked around. Keep in mind we’re still writing the story, but I’ll say one phrase for you: custody battle. I’ll give you that. I’ll give you one other one: bowling for dollars.
