Ron Burgundy is Back! Will Ferrell Confirms ‘Anchorman’ Sequel (VIDEO)
Will Ferrell slipped back into his maroon suit and mustache for a special appearance on Thursday night’s CONAN. Showing off his solo flute skills, San Diego’s favorite newsman had a big announcement to make, but first he had to bust Conan O’Brien’s chops a bit.
“You look like someone put a bright red fright wig on a skeleton and chucked it out of a helicopter,” he told the late night host.
But the big reveal was that the beloved Ron Burgundy will be returning for an Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy sequel.
The Associated Press reports that Will, Paul Rudd and Steve Carell are confirmed to return as well as director Adam McKay and producer Judd Apatow. It’s still not confirmed if Ron B’s love interest Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) will be in the sequel.
As if you could forget, the first movie was about Ron Burgundy, San Diego’s top rated newsman in the male dominated broadcasting of the 1970’s. However, that all changes when a new female employee (Veronica) arrives in his office.
