Anchorman 2 to Start Filming in February 2013

Anchorman

Anchorman 2 will begin shooting in February 2013. After star Will Ferrell announced the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2004's Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy this week, writer/director Adam McKay took to his Twitter account to confirm the news and reveal a start date.

"A few people questioning if Anchorman 2 is 100% for sure happening. Let me assure and assuage: it is. We're writing now and we shoot in Feb (sic)" he wrote on his Twitter.

It has also been revealed that Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd will reprise their roles of Brick Tamland and Brian Fantana respectively in the sequel even though a deal was only reached with Paramount Pictures this week.

"We didn't expect a week ago that this thing was going to get greenlit. It's been alive and dead so many times," a source told Deadline.
