A raunchier R-rated version of ANCHORMAN 2 is coming to theaters...for one week
The men and women of Global News Network will return for a one-week re-release that contains 763 new jokes. Writer/director Adam McKay revealed back in October that an alternate version was in consideration, and Paramount Pictures announced early Friday morning that it will hit theaters on Feb. 28. It's billed as a "super-sized R-rated version," which implies a raunchier approach than the PG-13 cut that opened in December. Most of the new iteration will come from the actors' improv takes. Will it be funnier than the original? You be the judge.
