The seemingly endless saga of getting Anchorman 2 onto our screens continues, with TheWrap reporting that Kristen Wiig is being eyed for a role in the movie. If a deal is reached, she’d play the love interest of Steve Carell’s Brick Tamland.
Anchorman: The Continues already has Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, and Christina Applegate set to return, with Adam McKay and Will Ferrell currently working on the script. All that is known about the story is that it will be set in the late 1970s and focusses on how the Action 4 News team tries to adapt to the changes in broadcast news.
Not too long ago is was revealed that director Adam McKay hopes to begin shooting in either January or February, but as it seems the script isn’t ready yet, things may get delayed.
