Kirsten Wiig to star in Anchorman 2

Feb 5 2013, 2:22am CST | by

Kristen Wiig is to star in 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues'.

The 'Bridesmaids' actress has inked a deal to appear in the long-awaited sequel, though details of her role have not yet been announced.

Director, producer and co-writer Adam McKay tweeted the news, writing, ''Just found out Kristen Wiig officially on board for Anchorman 2. Cannonball! (sic)''

Though Kristen's role hasn't been confirmed, she was previously speculated to be joining the movie as a love interest for Brick Tamaland (Steve Carell).

Producer Judd Apatow recently said Adam and Will Ferrell - who portrays lead character Ron Burgundy - have written a hilarious script for the sequel, but were trying to keep it secret for as long as possible.

He said: ''Adam McKay and Will Ferrell wrote it, Adam McKay directs it and they came up with the most hilarious script.

''We read it a few weeks ago and people were laughing so hard that at about 40 minutes in we all just ran out of gas. It was hard to read the whole thing because we got tired [from laughing].

''I've never seen anyone delight in playing a character than Will acting like Ron Burgundy all day. He's just so happy doing it it's infectious.

''I can't give it away because it's more secret than the next 'Star Wars.' All I can say is that there are no Wookies in it. But it's top-secret.''

'Anchorman: The Legend Continues' is set for release on December 20.

Adam McKay, Miao Wang, and Damon Smith Talk WE THE ECONOMY: 20 SHORT FILMS YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO MISS, the Genesis of the Project, and More

We all know the economy crashed in 2008, but how many of us know why or how? Odds are, if you pulled a random stranger off the street they would struggle to properly define a recession, let alone explain the complex series of events that led to the economic crash – I certainly can't. In a world where economic theories and practices have come to rule so much of our personal lives (looking at you, credit scores) and dominate the sphere of political discourse, it's ...

Adam McKay Looking to Direct Marvel Movie

Oct 23 2014 10:31am CDT | Source: slash film

Back in the hectic days of summer, Adam McKay was named as one of many possibilities to replace director Edgar Wright on Ant-Man.
