McKay breaks the news on Twitter
“Anchorman” signs off on twitter.
On Thursday, director Adam McKay tweeted that Paramount has passed on making “Anchorman 2.”
“So bummed. Paramount basically passed on Anchorman 2. Even after we cut our budget down. We tried,” read McKay’s tweet.
Paramount and CAA, which reps McKay, didn’t have a response to McKay’s comments.
Twitter and social media are making it increasingly different for studios and agents to control the flow of information. That’s a power they’re loathe to cede.
Original “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy” starred Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate. Film grossed $84.1 million domestically.
