A brief teaser trailer for Anchorman: The Legend Continues (aka Anchorman 2) is playing in front of The Dictator beginning today and along with that news we now have a teaser poster for the film, which according to co-writer and director Adam McKay will revolve around the 24 hour news cycle.
McKay recently gave Empire the following quote regarding the direction the film’s plot will be heading:
“It’s right when all the news started changing with the 24-hours news cycle in ’78 or ’79. All of a sudden, local news stations diversified and had Latino anchors and African-American anchors, and any time you’re talking about diversity and the Action News team, that’s always fun to deal with. We know these guys never deal well with change, and the good thing is that there’s a big blast of change coming, according to the regular timeline. We’re going to be throwing a lot of innovation at them, and they’re not going to handle it well.”
McKay and Ferrell are currently working on the film’s script and shooting is expected to begin in February 2013. So far the only confirmed members of the cast are Will Ferrell, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, but I’m sure we can expect David Koechner to return along with a slew of familiar faces.
The first poster is featured directly below.
