Anchorman - The Legend of Ron Burgundy, which opened in the UK and Ireland
on 10 September 2004, Will Ferrell (Elf, Old School) stars as Ron
Burgundy, the top-rated anchorman in San Diego in the '70s.
When feminism marches into the newsroom in the form of ambitious newswoman
Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate - TV's Married With Children),
Ron is willing to play along at first - as long as Veronica stays in her place,
covering cat fashion shows, cooking, and other 'female' interests. But, when
Veronica refuses to settle for being eye candy and steps behind the news desk,
it's more than a battle between two perfectly coiffed anchor-persons… it's war.
Anchorman - The Legend of Ron Burgundy also stars Paul Rudd (The Cider
House Rules), Steve Carell (Bruce Almighty) and David Koechner (A
Guy Thing) as members of Ron's news team, and Fred Willard (A Mighty Wind)
and Chris Parnell (TV's Saturday Night Live) as news producers.
Will Ferrell co-wrote the screenplay for Anchorman with Adam McKay, a
former Saturday Night Live head writer and co-founder of the Upright
Citizen's Brigade comedy troupe. McKay also made his directorial debut on the
movie. Judd Apatow (TV's Freaks and Geeks, The Larry Sanders Show)
produced the film, with Shauna Robertson (Elf, Meet The Parents)
and David O. Russell (Three Kings, Flirting With Disaster)
executive producing, and David Householter (The Core) co-producing.
