Steve Carell wants Anchorman on Broadway

Steve Carell is looking to bring Anchorman to Broadway.

 

The comedian, who appeared as weatherman Brick Tamland in the film, revealed that he backed plans by Anchorman director Adam McKay and main star Will Ferrell to take the stage:

 

“Adam McKay and Will – they had an idea… that we’d do it as a Broadway musical with the original cast,” he said. “We would develop bits and things within the show. And then at the end of the Broadway run we would go shoot a movie. That was the idea.”

 

Carell did however admit that for now the stage adaptation idea is nothing more than a pipedream, adding: “I would love to do it… maybe one day.”
