Kristen Wiig may join ‘Anchorman 2’

Kristen Wiig is being eyed for a role in Anchorman: The Legend Continues for Paramount Pictures, a person familiar with the negotiations has told The Wrap. Wiig would play opposite Steve Carell, as a love interest in the sequel. The script is still being written, and no cast beyond the principals has been set. Adam McKay is directing the feature, which is being produced by Judd Apatow through his Apatow Productions banner. The film is a sequel to the 2004 hit, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and is due to be released in October 2013. Anchorman 2 will see the original film’s cast return, including Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd and Carell. Let’s hope Kristen will have time to film the movie, with all the promotion she will be doing for her upcoming projects next year!
