Say what you will about Will Ferrell, but the guy is willing to take risks. For proof, you need look no further than "Casa de mi Padre," which was done entirely in Spanish. If he thinks something is funny, he does it and lets the chips fall where they may.

All of which is our way of preparing you for this: According to indieWire, "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is going to be a musical.

Yup. That just happened.

Of course, music is nothing new to the world of "Anchorman;" after all, one of the best known scenes in the 2004 original was the cast coming together for an impromptu rendition of the 1976 pop hit "Afternoon Delight."

But "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is going to take this a little bit father, according to McKay. In fact, they're so dedicated to the musical aspect, they almost produced "Anchorman 2" as a stage show instead.

"We were going to do 'Anchorman 2' as a Broadway musical first, for like six months and then go shoot the movie. That was our initial idea," McKay said. And while that was eventually scrapped, McKay says "Anchorman 2" will still feature "whole song sequences, absolutely."

"We have some songs already written," he added.

We can't wait to hear the soundtrack for this one.
