Veronica Corningstone to reunite with the Channel 4 News Team.

It has been confirmed that Christina Applegate (‘Up All Night,’ ‘The Rocker’) is to reprise her role as Veronica Corningstone for ‘Anchorman 2.’ The actress joins returning stars Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner.

Talking to Empire, director and co-writer Adam McKay revealed more details as to where the sequel will be headed:

“We know these guys never deal well with change, and the good thing is that there’s a big blast of change coming… It’s right when all the news started changing with the 24-hours news cycle in ’78 or ’79. All of a sudden, local news stations diversified and had Latino anchors and African-American anchors, and any time you’re talking about diversity and the Action News team, that’s always fun to deal with.”
