Bridesmaids actress Kristen Wiig is rumored to join the hilarious cast in the Anchorman sequel, Anchorman: The Legend Continues.
A source close to production reveals to The Wrap that Wiig could possibly join the cast and play opposite Steve Carell’s character Brick Tamland. Wiig could play Carell’s potential love interest.
Thus far, no confirmations have been made and the only characters confirmed are 2004’s Ron Burgundy, played by Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate’s Veronica Corningstone and Burgundy’s news-team Brian Fantana, Champ Kind and Tamland. Luke Wilson is rumored to rekindle his role as Frank Vitchard.
A script is currently in the works, The Wrap notes, and the film is expected to have a 2013 debut.
News of the sequel was first announced in March by Ron Burgundy himself.
“I want to announce this to everyone here in the Americas, to our friends in Spain, Turkey and the U.K. - including England - that as of 0900 mountain time, Paramount Pictures and myself, Ronald Joseph Aaron Burgundy, have come to terms on a sequel to Anchorman,” he said at the time.
