Will Ferrell, former Saturday Night Live veteran, is hard at work filming Anchorman 2 with director Adam McKay in Atlanta, leading to multiple set reports from Georgia film fans who have been able to witness some of the production work. There’s only so much that can be protected, and apparently it’s very hard to hide scenes being filmed at an outdoor skating rink in downtown Atlanta.
Access Atlanta has the scoop on the fact that Ferrell – and a stand-in stunt ice skater – shot scenes at a temporary skating rink over the weekend. Security was tight on the comedy’s set (obviously), though Access hints that photos from the Peachtree Center set might be floating around the Internet on various social-media feeds.
We don’t know a lot about the Anchorman: The Legend Continues, plot, so we cannot tel you why the Anchorman sequel is looking like a follow up to Blades of Glory.
