Will Ferrell wants Anchorman 3

WILL Ferrell wants to make 'Anchorman 3'.

The 48-year-old actor has played bumbling news anchor Ron Burgundy in the two movies in the series and is keen to return for a third.

Director Adam McKay - who wrote the movies with Will - told the New York Daily News: "Initially I thought no more sequels, there are so many interesting original ideas we want to do.

"Then I started talking to Ferrell and it was like, 'Oh yeah, there's something really interesting in letting these guys get old.' Maybe not in the immediate future, but yes, no we have kicked it around."

And Adam thinks Will's idea of returning to the story when the characters are much older is an interesting one.

He explained: "The funny thing with 'Anchorman' is because it's not age dependent, they don't have to all be 28-year-old leads. 'Anchorman' is a movie we really could do another one in ten years, and they could all have grey hair and look old and it would actually maybe even help the movie."

The movies also star Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd and Steve Carell.
