It appears a planned sequel to the 2004 Will Ferrell comedy Anchorman is quite a ways away from happening. Contact Music is reporting (via a Zoo Magazine article that isn't online) that Will Ferrell has revealed an Anchorman sequel has been put on hold. Here's Ferrell's quote from the magazine.

"I thought we were doing it. I was told it was happening and now I've heard it's going to be too hard to get everyone together. RELATED: Anchorman 3 Could Happen, But Might Take a While Says David Koechner

"Hopefully the director Adam McKay will be able to talk to all the guys individually and see if we can figure it out."

Ferrell added that it would be hard to top the original film, but he said he would be interested in making the sequel.

"We don't think we can make it as good. It would be really fun to do, so we might just try to make the craziest sequel you've ever seen. It could be terrible, but if they're going to pay us to do it, then why not, right?"

We'll be sure to keep you posted on any further details on an Anchorman sequel as soon as we have more information.
