Anchorman writer/director Adam Mackay has revealed the first plot details for the Anchorman sequel, which was announced by Ron Burgundy last month.
Speaking with Empire Magazine about the new plot, Mackay said:
“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…It’s right when all the news started changing with the 24-hour 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.”
The sequel will see the return of original cast members Paul Rudd and Steve Carell and is expected to hit cinemas in late 2013.
