James Mardsen set for Anchorman 2

Feb 22 2013, 4:19am CST | by

James Marsden has been cast in 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues'.

The 'X-Men' actor is expected to play bumbling hero Ron Burgandy's rival news reader in the sequel to 2004's laugh-a-minute comedy 'Anchorman', according to Deadline.

James will join original cast members including leading man Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate as well as newcomer, 'Bridesmaids' actress Kristen Wiig.

The 39-year-old hunk most recently starred in risqué comedy 'Bachelorette' and has just finished filming 'Walk Of Shame' with Elizabeth Banks.

This news comes after veteran actor Terence Stamp let slip he had been contacted by ''Will Ferrell's people'' about playing a ''Rupert Murdoch-type figure'' in the funnyman's new project.

Producer Judd Apatow recently revealed the script, penned by Will and director Adam McKay, is hysterically funny, but has vowed to keep details of the plot under wraps.

He said: ''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 can't give it away because it's more secret than the next 'Star Wars.'

'Anchorman 2' is eyeing up a March shoot in Atlanta for a December 2013 release.

Billy Bob Thornton Says 'Bad Santa 2' Won't Be as Good as the First

Oct 22 2014 9:39am CDT | Source: First Showing

We've been hearing about Bad Santa 2 intermittently from Billy Bob Thornton over the past couples years. The original film is now 11 years old, which means more time has passed than the time it took for Adam McKay and Will Ferrell to get Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues off the ground. Many fans have probably just assumed the project is dead and would never become a reality, but it sounds like the film is just stuck in the Hollywood development machine. T ...

Adam McKay has been discussing rewriting Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man script in a new interview with Collider, and has suggested that his version will be more action-heavy. “[Paul Rudd] called me when Edgar Wright stepped away from the project and told me what was going on,” says McKay. “I went and met with Marvel, and I was a little dubious just because I’m friends with Edgar and I didn’t know what the story was.” “And then when I kind of heard what happened, that Edgar had ...

This ANT-MAN doesn't just change size, he can also rewrite his own script!

Oct 17 2014 6:30pm CDT | Source: aintitcool

Paul Rudd assisted Adam McKay in rewriting Edgar Wright's initial draft. Read the full article on AICN We all knew that pleasing Paul Rudd was a huge factor in choosing a replacement for Edgar Wright when he left ANT-MAN. The cast, up to and including Rudd, had been hand-picked by Wright, and if they didn't want their leading man to jump ship, they were going to have to bring someone he a. liked and b. could work well with. So along with bringing in Peyton Reed to di ...

Paul Rudd Helped Adam McKay Rewrite ‘Ant-Man’

Oct 17 2014 5:45pm CDT | Source: slash film

When Edgar Wright left Marvel’s Ant-Man, the amount of speculation and discussion was crazy. Eventually, Peyton Reed was hired as the director after a rewrite by none other than Adam McKay.

Well, now we have a few more details. Once Wright left, the film’s star – Paul Rudd ...
