Steve Carell Wants 'Anchorman' Sequel for Fun


Though the project has been shelved, the actor still urges movie bosses to make 'Anchorman 2' because 'it could be as playful and as fun as the original.'

Comedian Steve Carell is urging movie studio bosses to reconsider making a sequel to "Anchorman" because he's convinced a second installment will be as good as the original. "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy", starring Will Ferrell in the title role, was a hit when it was released in 2004, raking in $90 million (60 million pound sterling) in revenue on a relatively small budget of $26 million (17.3 million pound sterling).

Plans for "Anchorman 2" were subsequently announced but the idea was shelved by Paramount executives after they rejected director Adam McKay's $60 million (40 million pound sterling) request for funds. But Carell, who co-starred in the comedy with Ferrell and Paul Rudd, wants Paramount bosses to rethink their decision.

He tells EmpireOnline.com, "I selfishly want to do it again just for the fun of it. And I think it could be as playful and as fun as the original."
