‘Anchorman’ sequel in the works, causes excitement

On March 28, while Will Ferrell was on Conan O’Brien’s set, he revealed that there will be a sequel to “Anchorman.”

While speaking with AM760/Salon, co-writer/director Adam McKay made several hints about the movie, which is currently being scripted. “I don’t want to give away too much … but I’ll just say one phrase for you: custody battle. I’ll give you one other one: bowling for dollars” (movieline.com).

According to mtv.com, most of the principal cast members will reappear in the sequel, including Steve Carell and Paul Rudd. Paramount Pictures will also help produce the sequel.

It has been seven years since the original movie was released, but fans are as excited as ever.

3-year-old finds live hand grenade at Easter egg hunt

An Easter egg hunt in Somerset, England came to a dramatic end when children searching for chocolate and candy stumbled upon a live hand grenade.

The grenade, believed to be left over from World War II, was found by a 3-year-old boy in a field next to a busy road. He thought it was a rock.

As people were counting eggs at the end of the invigorating adventure, a father of three saw the boy “standing on an object … it was brown and about four inches high” (web.orange.co.uk).

Police arrived and contacted an Army explosives team, who detonated the grenade (blog.sfgate.com).
