'Anchorman 2' was going to be a musical, says Adam McKay

Two reasons to believe him aside from the “Afternoon Delight” moment in the first film (and the music video): Ferrell’s limited run with You’re Welcome America. A Final Night with George W Bush in 2009, and we know Paul Rudd loves to karaoke. (McKay’s reps did not have further comment on the matter when contacted earlier today.)

What other films would you like to see made into a Broadway musical? I wonder how The Notebook is coming? And Elf?
