By The Beard of Zeus! Will Ferrell Tells Conan 'Anchorman 2' is Greenlit at Paramount (Video)

Rejoice, "Anchorman 2" is coming. Paramount is partnering with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions and Judd Apatow for a sequel to the beloved 2004 original (DreamWorks; $89 million worldwide). The 2004 comedy is arguably the most quoted film of the last decade.

McKay will write and direct again, and Ferrell will be joined by his original news team: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner. Ideas are being kicked around about what the news will be in their 1970s San Diego office. Maybe the '80s have arrived? Great Odin's Raven!

Watch Ron Burgundy deliver the news to Conan below. We've also thrown in some "Anchorman" outtakes for your enjoyment. And tell us, what's your favorite "Anchorman" quote?
