Anchorman Sequel: Director Adam McKay Says Custody Battle Is In Store For Ron Burgundy (VIDEOS)

Posted: Updated:

Ron Burgundy has done battle with a number of things in his day: bears, newscasters with nunchucks, and "a glass case of emotion" that wouldn't let him go.

Could the fictional character's next fight be for child custody?

It just may be. "Anchorman" director and co-writer Adam McKay spoke with radio station AM760 Monday and revealed some promising details about what's in store for Will Ferrell's San Diego newsman in the upcoming sequel to the 2004 comedy.

"I don’t want to give away too much, but I’ll just give a couple pieces of ideas that we’ve kicked around. Keep in mind we’re still writing the story, but I’ll say one phrase for you: custody battle. I’ll give you that," the director teased. "I’ll give you one other one: bowling for dollars."

So does this mean that Ron has begot a mini Burgundy with lady love Veronica Corningstone since we last saw him? Will the one-time rivals for the anchor seat duke it out again, this time over child custody? We'll have to wait and see.
