New cut of Anchorman 2 to be released

21 February 2014

By the hymen of Olivia Newton-John!

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is to be re-released in cinemas for one week only, under the snappy title Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Continued.

This new extended edit of the 1970s-set comedy features, according to promotional material, 763 new jokes (“give or take”).

An alternate cut was mooted by director Adam McKay back in October. McKay and Will Ferrell encourage an improvisational atmosphere on set which leads to dozens of unused takes.

The first Anchorman film spawned Wake Up, Ron Burgundy an entirely separate straight-to-DVD movie featuring unused takes and discarded plotlines.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues Continued will be released, for one week only, on February 28th.
