'Anchorman: The Legend Continues' Arriving in December of 2013

Briefly: Earlier this summer, two teaser trailers announced the return of Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 News Team in Anchorman: The Legend Continues, a sequel that will arrive almost a full ten years after Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner all returned for the teaser, but we've only known the wide open projection of 2013 for the film's release. Well, it's getting almost the last possible release date that year as Paramount Pictures has just announced the sequel will arrive on December 20th, 2013. Kristen Wiig just joined the cast, but the film hasn't even started shooting yet, so that's going to be a fast turnaround. Hope that doesn't taint the quality.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues is written and directed by Adam McKay, the man behind the original 2004 comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and films like Step Brothers and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. The film reunites the Channel 4 News Team played by Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner, and cast members like Vince Vaughn and Christina Applegate are expected to return. The script is still being written, but the film will see the dawn of the 24-hour news cycle and the addition of anchors of different races, all making for a tense workplace for the old crew. Excited?
