Christina Applegate is all ready for Anchorman 3

17 December 2013 / 2 years 10 months ago

Christina Applegate wants to start work on 'Anchorman 3', despite having only just made the second film in the comedy series.

The 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' actress - who plays sexy newsreader Veronica Corningstone in the film series - is upset it took so long to get a sequel made to the original 2004 film, and can't wait to start on another installment.

She told "I don't want to wait nine years. I would do [another] one next year if I could."

Meanwhile Steve Carrell - who stars as part of the fictional Channel 4 news team in the movie alongside Christina, Paul Rudd, Will Ferrell and David Koechner - says they shot a huge musical number for the movie, but it was later left out from the final cut.

He said: "There was an entire musical number that we spent a week shooting.

"It was cut from the final movie. It was very good and we all thought, 'Boy, this is gonna be a real cornerstone of this entire thing,' but I guess it just took a left turn."

However, Paul is sure the scene will surface at some point, most likely as a DVD extra.

He said: "It was lengthy and it also was happening at a time where the story had really kicked in and at a certain point, you have to take into consideration the film's running length and get in essentially the story, but I think that that will surface at some point."
