In a scoop worthy of the Action 4 News Team, Rob Burgundy has issued a special message that the teaser trailer for Anchorman 2 will premiere before The Dictator, which opens everywhere on Wednesday May 16th.
Word first broke that Will Ferrell and director Adam McCay were revisiting Burgundy’s demented world of late 70′s San Diego back in March when the Anchorman himself crashed Conan O’ Brien’s show to perform a mind-blowing flute solo with Conan’s band. And now, Action 4 News fans everywhere will be able to catch the first glimpse of Burgundy’s epic return to the silver screen right in front of Sacha Baron Cohen’s new comedy starting this week.
Legendary newscaster Ron Burgundy announced today that a teaser trailer for “Anchorman 2″ will appear exclusively on “The Dictator,” beginning at midnight tomorrow. Said Burgundy in a tweet, “I don’t know what a teaser trailer is either but they say you all will. When did the world get so crazy? I’m having a scotch.”
Anchorman 2 won’t be hitting theaters until some time in 2013, but many of the original players, including Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd, are expected to return. Whether or not the sequel will be a full-fledged musical, Ferrell and McCay’s original idea, remains to be seen.
