“The First Cut Was Four Hours” – Inside the ‘Anchorman 2′ Editing Room With Director Adam McKay

Paramount Pictures

Adam McKay is releasing a new film in December, and it’s kind of a big deal.

'Anchorman 2,' one of the few films that truly earns the description “highly anticipated,” arrives in theaters December 20, and the filmmaker is in the final days of editing the film down, paring out superfluous bits, rejiggering set pieces, and swapping out jokes to ensure that audiences thoroughly split their sides watching the overdue reunion of Ron Burgundy, Veronica Corningstone, Champ Kind, Brian Fantana and Brick Tamland.

McKay invited us inside the 'Anchorman 2' edit bay, where he showcased a couple of scenes from the film and offered a few details about what audiences might expect to see. In addition to elaborating on possible plans to release multiple versions of the film in the same way they did with the original 'Anchorman,' McKay explained their massively complicated process of arranging and assembling all of the footage they shoot, and offered perspective on the longevity and the legacy of Anchorman, as Burgundy and his news team prepare to return to the screen.

And, he's such a nice guy, he even gave us three new 'Anchorman 2' posters to share with you featuring James Marsden, Meagan Good and a hilarious Kristen Wiig.

We already have a Ron Burgundy book and Ron Burgundy's Scotchy-Scotch-Scotch ice cream, so it's time for Baxter to have his shot at the big time. Now 'Anchorman 2' director Adam McKay says he wants to work on a kid-friendly 'Anchorman' spinoff that would follow the adventures of Baxter and the son of Ron Burgundy.

‘Anchorman 2′ Alternate Cut With 250 Different Jokes to Hit Theaters

It's no secret that director Adam McKay loves to let his actors improv and riff, sometimes repeating the same scene dozens of times and creating new material with every take. With 2004's 'Anchorman,' McKay had so much additional material that he was able to create an additional film, titled 'Wake Up, Ron Burgundy' for the DVD release. With 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' right around the corner, he's revealed a far more ambitious (and insane) plan.

Sadly, outside of the occasional Old Milwaukee commercial, occasional 'SNL' appearance, or maybe even the latest episode of 'Bitch Hunter,' we're unlikely to see Will Ferrell take any regular presence on the small screen again.  That's okay though, considering the imminent arrival of 'Anchorman 2' with director Adam McKay, and an upcoming NBC series with both behind the camera!  And hey, why not throw in a little Anne Heche for good measure?  Who's ready for 'Bad Judge?'
