Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy

Adam McKay has revealed that Ron Burgundy and the rest of the characters will be facing change in the Anchorman sequel.

McKay is set to direct the movie and has also penned the script - which sees Will Ferrell return to the popular character.

The movie will be set in the late seventies but the newsroom is facing a whole host of changes - that Burgundy and co do not adapt well to.

Speaking to Empire McKay said:"We know these guys never deal well with change, and the good thing is that there's a big blast of change coming, according to the regular timeline.

"We're going to be throwing a lot of innovation at them, and they're not going to handle it well!"

Anchorman 2 is a project that looked like it would never happen but Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd will also be reprising their roles in the comedy.

Penning the screenplay for the movie is still underway.
