Will Ferrell has delighted Anchorman fans by confirming his comedy creation Ron Burgundy will be back for a second movie outing.
A follow-up to 2004 cult comedy Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy, which starred Ferrell as an obnoxious 1970s newsman, has long been mooted, but Ferrell has now revealed he is working on a sequel.
The actor appeared in character as Burgundy during an appearance on Conan O'Brien's TV talk show on Wednesday to announce the news to fans.
He said, "As of 09:00 Mountain Time, Paramount Pictures and myself, Ronald Joseph Aaron Burgundy, have come to terms on a sequel to Anchorman. It is official! There will be a sequel to Anchorman. There will be a sequel.”
It is not yet known if Ferrell's co-stars Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate will be returning in the new film.
