Now that we know Anchorman 2 is officially a go, director Adam McKay has been more than happy to share more details about what we might get to see in one of the most highly anticipated sequels in recent years.
The whole gang will be back, including Will Ferrell as lead Channel 4 anchor Ron Burgundy, Steve Carell as dimwitted weather guy Brick Tamland, Paul Rudd as self-proclaimed stylish one of the group Brian Fantana and David Koachner as sports reporter Champ Kind, but what of ambitious anchorlady Veronica Corningstone herself, Christina Applegate?
McKay remains cautiously optimistic about her return, though he admits that, in the grand tradition of male-centric franchises, the female roles aren’t quite so essential:
…kind of in the Austin Powers tradition, they always flip out the lead lady.
