Pooch officially screwed

We all wanted Anchorman 2, right?

I mean, seriously. How is this not an executive's wet dream? Bankable stars willing to take a pay cut to make a sequel to a popular film that sells well on DVD. Yet, somehow, as if they were possessed by a demon that only permits them to churn out sequels and remakes that we loathe, they passed on the project. Well, Devin over at Chud had an interview with director Adam McKay...and boy howdy did we miss out on what would have been brilliance. According to McKay, "It was a musical. We were going to do four months on Broadway and then jump right into filming." Let your mind wrap around that for a second. I'll wait.

Welcome back. Yes, that's right, we were going to see a musical Anchorman that would have run on Broadway (something McKay probably got a flavor for while working with Will Ferrell on "You're Welcome America"). That's just...I mean, wow. So here you have a fairly inspired sequel that we'll never see, but we have a second Cats and Dogs movie coming out in friggin' 3D this week. Really? I hate everybody. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go figure out what kind of songs would have been in this classic. What rhymes with sex panther?
