Anchorman 2 Cancelled By People Who Do Not Love Lamp

Bad news for Anchorman fans, the rumored sequel to the hit comedy movie will not be getting a sequel.

There had been rumors that a much-anticpated Anchorman 2 was in the works, but little details were known.

However, any thought of reliving Ron Burgundy’s mustache was squashed earlier this week when the original Anchorman director Adam McKay tweeted that Paramount Studios passed on the sequel, even after McKay and his team had agreed to cut their budget.

From McKay’s Twitter (via Perez Hilton):

So bummed. Paramount basically passed on Anchorman 2. Even after we cut our budget down. We tried.

To all who asked: no we can’t do Anchorman 2 at another studio. Paramount owns it.

How lame. Why wouldn’t Paramount want to reignite the success of the original Anchorman?
