As previously mentioned, production on Anchorman: The Legend Continues is scheduled to start next week in Atlanta. Director Adam McKay recently dropped a few tidbits of information regarding the film’s story, revealing that the plot involves the newsteam angling for glory in New York City and talking a bit about Kristen Wiig’s character. Here’s what he said:
“Brick’s so far gone that you can’t have a relationship with him,” [McKay] laughed, admitting that Kristen Wiig’s character will be tempting him to do just that. “It takes a special someone to get a rope snare around his heart. She is dangerous!”
So excited for this movie! If pictures from the set find their way online we will post them. Watch this space for that! Also, thanks to Collider.com for the article.

Just a small update on the status of Anchorman: The Legend Continues! According to several Twitter-accounts, cast-members from the highly anticipated sequel - including Kristen Wiig – have been spotted in Atlanta. The filming is set to start in March, so I think we can expect to see the first pictures from the set late this week/early next. If Kristen is pictured on location for the film we’ll add the photos to our photo gallery. Stay tuned!

As most of you might know, the 85th Annual Academy Awards are taking place tonight in Hollywood. Unfortunately, Kristen Wiig isn’t scheduled to be part of the event, however there is still a chance that she’ll attend the famous Vanity Fair Oscar Party after the ceremony. Last year she attended both events, as well as posed with friends Maya Rudolph and Emma Stone (make a movie together, already!) in the Vanity Fair Photo booth. I have – insert finally – added the photos, along with a new one released just a couple of days ago, to our photo gallery. Edit: Unfortunately, Kristen didn’t attend any Oscars-related events.
The gallery updates continue today with new additions from public appearances Kristen Wiig made in 2008. That year she promoted Pretty Bird at the Sundance Film Festival, Saturday Night Live at various press tours and Ghost Town at the Toronto International Film Festival. Over 100 pictures from those events and many more – both old and new (to the gallery) ones – have been added to our photo gallery.
According to Deadline Hollywood, X-Men‘s James Marsden is the latest cast member to join Will Ferrell & Co. in Anchorman: The Legend Continues. While plot details have been kept largely under wraps, he’s rumored to play a rival anchor and nemesis to Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy in the sequel. The movie is set to start filming next month in Atlanta. Adam McKay is directing the December 20, 2013 release with much of the original Anchorman cast reprising their roles, including Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Christina Applegate. New additions to the cast also include Kristen Wiig and Terence Stamp.

Yesterday Kristen Wiig attended the 15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards with her SNL pals Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph. She looked gorgeous in a white dress as she was photographed arriving to the event. Over 100 pictures from the awards show have been added to our photo gallery!
According to US Weekly (confirmed by practically every other media-outlet), Kristen Wiig is set to guest star on the fourth season of Arrested Development! Vulture then reported that she will play a younger version of Jessica Walter’s boozy matriarch Lucille Bluth. The much-anticipated return of the modern cult classic show will be available on Netflix this May. So many great projects for Wiig, how excited are you for this addition to the show?
