Anchorman 2 producer Judd Apatow has admitted that he is looking forward to seeing what Will Ferrell and Adam McKay come up with for the highly anticipated sequel. Judd also stated that he does not expect Anchorman 2 to affect how people view the original Anchorman movie.
Apatow explained to The Huffington Post, "We're talking about shooting that next year, and Will [Ferrell] and Adam [McKay] are off writing. We always knew we wanted to do a sequel, and the great thing about Anchorman is that you could do a sequel when they're any age."
He added, "I've never been somebody who thinks that you should worry about the second one ruining the reputation of the first one. I still like Caddyshack. I don't mind that Caddyshack 2 wasn't as good as Caddyshack 1. It doesn't ruin Caddyshack for me. But I'm glad they made Godfather 2 and Back to the Future Part II and Part III."
Judd continued, I always say go for it. All of these actors and writers on Anchorman have such an incredible chemistry, it would be a waste for them not to work together again. I'm glad they are trying. Nobody in the world is funnier than Will and Adam, so I'm excited to see what they write."
