'Anchorman' Should Go Broadway, Steve Carrell Said


'Anchorman' Should Go Broadway, Steve Carrell Said


In order to pull back up the sequel project, director Adam McKay and producer/star Will Ferrell planned to produce a stage musical edition first.

Comedian Steve Carell is urging Broadway bosses to consider producing "Anchorman" the musical, as a way to get movie executives back on board for a big screen sequel. "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy", starring Will Ferrell in the title role, was a box office hit when it was released in 2004.

But plans for a sequel were shelved by Paramount executives after they rejected director Adam McKay's $60 millions request for funds. Carell, who co-starred in the comedy with Ferrell and Paul Rudd, recently admitted he hasn't given up on "Anchorman 2" - and he's hoping McKay and Ferrell's idea for a Broadway run will prompt Paramount bosses to rethink their decision.

He says, "Adam McKay and Will - they had an idea... that we'd do it as a Broadway musical with the original cast and... we would develop bits and things within the show. And then at the end of the Broadway run we would go shoot a movie. That was the idea. I would love to do it... maybe one day."
