Stay Classy: They’re Making a Sequel to Anchorman

Knights of Columbus! I was in a glass case of emotion when I saw this last night. A flute-playing Ron Burgundy appeared on Conan to break the big story, about himself.
EW fills in some of the details:
Will Steve Carell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner also be returning? Will more than eight years have elapsed in Ron Burgundy’s time-period, or is he still smack in the middle of the 1970s? When will this movie begin shooting or hit theaters?
Like any smart newsman, Burgundy didn’t stick around to answer questions.
EW got in touch with Paramount for some of the details.
Carell and Rudd will definitely be coming back, though all others are still up in the air. Ferrell and Adam McKay will co-write the script, and McKay (who made the original) will be back to direct.
Gary Sanchez Productions will produce along with Judd Apatow Productions, and the movie is expected to get underway toward the end of year for release in 2013.
