The internet rumors are true! A sequel to 'Anchorman' is really happening -- Steve Carell said as much on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC). The studio audience cheered and gave a standing ovation.
Umm, no... Just kidding. (Dude! That's mean.) But he then described a Ron Burgundy rendition with even more appeal: a Broadway musical, with the film's original cast.
"Sort of as the Marx brothers did their stage show, we would develop bits and things within the show. And then at the end of the Broadway run, we would go shoot a movie," said Carell.
They're all "down with it," but director Adam McKay and Will Ferrell "can't seem to connect with whatever they need to do." Maybe everyone's waiting to see how 'Elf' does on the Great White Way.
