The Legend Continues: Anchorman 2 To Battle Huge Movies in December 2013

The hugely anticipated sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues will hit theaters on December 20, 2013. Though the Adam McKay-directed movie is still being written, Paramount Pictures clearly have confidence in their product and have pitted it against a selection of huge movies opening on the same weekend.

Ron Burgundy and company will go head-to-head with Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, George Clooney's Monuments Men starring Matt Damon and Daniel Craig, Disney's Saving Mr Banks, the family flick Walking With The Dinosaurs - which is sure to be a Christmas hit - and Jon Turtleltaub's Last Vegas. Though plot details are yet to be revealed, all the man cast-members from the original film, Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner and Christina Applegate will be back for the sequel, according to Cinema Blend. 

A recent rumor suggested Will Ferrell and McKay are keen to sign up Kristen Wiig to play a love interest of Carell's character Brick Tamland, though this is yet to be confirmed. It's likely that the Bridesmaid actress would find time to shoot the film, though she has numerous roles lined up for 2013, including The Comedian and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

When the project was first announced, Paramount released a couple of different trailers for the sequel, one of which you can see below:
