Filming begins on Anchorman: The Legend Continues this spring, reuniting co-writer/director Adam McKay and the cast of Will Ferrell’s highly-quotable comedy after a nine-year break. The sequel picks up with Ron Burgundy and his news team in the late 1970s, as the good ship ‘Diversity’ arrives once more – this time, in the form of the 24-hours news cycle and innovation of the news industry.
No doubt, Ferrell – along with costars Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner and new addition Kristen Wiig - will be taking potshots at things like ’70s pop culture and contemporary journalism trends (often singing as they do so, apparently). Hence, someone like Rupert Murdoch seems an obvious target for lampooning, right? Well, that appears to be the plan, anyway.
