With Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues: Super-Sized R-Rated Version hitting theaters today before coming to Blu-ray on April 1, Empire got a chance to director Adam McKay about the “Anchorman” films.
The first movie earned $90.6 million worldwide on a $26 million budget and the second film $169.3 million on a $50 million budget. Despite the success, you shouldn’t expect a third installment.
“It?s done,” McKay said. “I think that?s it. It was great to do it and it was so fun to work with those guys again, but I think that?s it for Ron Burgundy. No, that’s the last sequel we?re gonna do. There’s nothing more fun to me than new characters and a new world. And now we’re releasing this alt version, we’re totally satisfied. No Anchorman 3.”
