Adam McKay: Anchorman 2 will be a 'big change'

Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)
Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) is the top-rated anchorman in San Diego in the '70s. When feminism marches into the newsroom in the form of ambitious newswoman Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), Ron is willing to play along at first-as long as Veronica stays in her place, covering cat fashion shows, cooking, and other "female" interests. But when Veronica refuses to settle for being eye candy and steps behind the news desk, it's more than a battle between two perfectly coiffed anchor-persons... it's war.

The 'Anchorman 2' characters can expect a ''big blast of change'' compared to the first installment of the film.

Writer/director Adam McKay isn't expecting the movie's stars - which will include news presenter Ron Burgundy, who is played by Will Ferrell - to cope with the differences in the follow up to the 2004 comedy movie because there will be ''a lot of innovation'' thrown in their direction.

He said: ''We know these guys never deal well with change, and the good thing is that there's a big blast of change coming, according to the regular timeline. We're going to be throwing a lot of innovation at them, and they're not going to handle it well.''

Adam confirmed the production team have already thought of ''a couple of ideas'' for a gang fight in the sequel following the success of the comical grapple in 'Anchorman', but he admitted the follow up is currently only ''two per cent'' written.

He added to Empire magazine: ''We've done about two per cent! Half a per cent? We've got five pages of story notes and chunks of story. We're holing up writing for the next three months.''

The original movie tells the story of big shot news presenter Ron who clashes with his new female counterpart while anchoring KVWN-TV Channel 4 Evening News.
