Christina Applegate has signed up to join Will Ferrell in Anchorman 2. The actress’ reps recently confirmed Applegate’s return as Veronica Corningstone. The Anchorman 2 sequel has been the talk of the town as of late, with Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner all on board to star in the upcoming film.
Koechner mentioned to E! News that Applegate was definitely returning to the 24-hour news channel. “Yes, yes,” he stated. Koechner also mentioned that the sequel would be “set around the advent of the 24-hour news channel,” which director Adam McKay already confirmed in April. “All of a sudden, local news stations diversified and had Latino anchors and African-American anchors, and any time you’re talking about diversity and the Action News team, that’s always fun to deal with,” said McKay at the time.
Two trailers for the movie have already hit the internet. Although, Mckay admitted, that the script has yet to be completed.
