'Anchorman' Sequel Will See Team Facing Diversity In News

Earlier this month, ĎAnchorman' writer-director Adam McKay hinted that the plot for the sequel would involve a change to the news team.

And in a new interview with Empire magazine, McKay expands on what he meant.

"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," explains McKay.

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

"It's right when all the news started changing with the 24-hours news cycle in '78 or '79," he says.

"All of a sudden, local news stations diversified and had Latino anchors and African-American anchors, and any time you're talking about diversity and the Action News team, that's always fun to deal with."

McKay has previously suggested that the sequel could hit theaters as early as Christmas 2013.
