In 2013 zagen we Anchorman: The Legend Continues, de sequel op de populaire film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Voor de film keerde acteur Will Ferrell terug als Ron Burgundy en Adam McKay nam weer plaats in de regiestoel. In een interview met Yahoo! zei McKay dat de derde Anchorman-film zal gaan over het internet:
“That was what we kind of talked about. We talked about doing one that was about the rise of the new media. I also thought there was something to the idea — and who knows, maybe we will do one some day — I also thought it’d be cool to have Ron Burgundy get embedded in the Iraq War. We kicked around that idea. But we’ve never got that serious about it, but it would have to be the next stage of what the media has become. And I think you’re right, I think it’s the internet. The only thing is by then Burgundy would be getting pretty old. So maybe it’s a movie we make in 10 years, when Will’s aged up and it actually makes sense that you can set it in 1997 or 98.”
Wereldwijd haalde The Legend Continues ongeveer €173 miljoen.
