If you liked Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, then you're not gonna believe what the cast and crew have in store for you next. The New York Times is calling it Anchorman 2 1/2.
Will Ferrell's comedy is returning to the big screen with 763 new jokes. "We started talking and realized, we can replace every single joke in the movie with another joke," director Adam McKay told The Times.
According to McKay, "95 percent of the gags were stripped out and replaced with alternate bits that had been left behind in the editing process."
Aware that re-releasing a hit movie is unheard of, the director adds, "It's crazy. Normally, you'd think I'd be the one asking for a new release."

"This is a stitched up, Frankenstein version," McKay said. "You'll either love it or hate it."
