Carell wants Anchorman on Broadway
Comedian Steve Carell is urging Broadway bosses to consider producing Anchorman the musical, as a way to get movie executives back on board for a big screen sequel.
But plans for a sequel were shelved by Paramount executives after they rejected director Adam McKay's £40 million request for funds.
Carell, who co-starred in the comedy with Ferrell and Paul Rudd, recently admitted he hasn't given up on Anchorman 2 - and he's hoping McKay and Ferrell's idea for a Broadway run will prompt Paramount bosses to rethink their decision.
He says, "Adam McKay and Will - they had an idea... that we'd do it as a Broadway musical with the original cast and... we would develop bits and things within the show. And then at the end of the Broadway run we would go shoot a movie. That was the idea.
"I would love to do it... maybe one day."
