Anchorman 2 is gearing up to shoot (last we heard it was going to start filming next month) and now AintItCool suggests Terence Stamp might join the movie.
The website got the info from the actor himself at a screening of Song For Marion. Stamp told them he’d been chatting with “Will Ferrell’s people”, and that he’s up for playing a “Rupert Murdoch-type figure” in the movie. Terrence added that he’d love to do it, but as yet there hasn’t been a formal offer.
There’s been little news on the plot for Anchorman 2, although we do know Ferrell, Paul Rudd and Steve Carrell are returning, with Kristen Wiig recently signing up.
At the same event, Stamp also mentioned that he’s written a “loose sequel” to The Limey. However we’re unlikely ever to see it as the project halted when both Soderbergh and Christie retired from the business, and he isn’t sure if we’ll ever see it.
