Will Ferrell and the most of the original cast of the first “Anchorman” film will return in “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” with a couple of new faces joining the team to liven things up.

With an estimated $50 million budget, the sequel is scheduled to begin production in Atlanta sometime in March. Adam McKay is directing the December 20th Paramount Pictures release for Gary Sanchez Productions and Apatow Productions.
