THR is reporting that Harrison Ford will play a legendary newscaster ala Tom Brokaw in the sequel to "Anchorman." Wait, didn't Ford already play a legendary newscaster ala Tom Brokaw in the ho-hum "Morning Glory?"
Maybe star Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay were inspired by his performance in that 2010 romantic comedy produced by J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk. Ford joins Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate, David Koechner, and Kristen Wiig when the sequel to "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" starts shooting in Atlanta this month.
Ferrell and McKay wrote the script and are producing along with Judd Apatow and Kevin Messick.
