'Anchorman 2' Almost Got the 'Kill Bill' Treatment

There is no such thing as too much Ron Burgundy. In fact, so much was filmed for the just-released Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues that certain cast members asked director Adam McKay to split the sequel into two films.

"There is so much movie. At one point, we were lobbying for the director to Kill Bill it," Champ Kind actor David Koechner told Entertainment Weekly. "Cut it in two. Give them everything. Because every day we'd walk away going, 'I don't know, is that it? What's in?' Because everything was wonderful. Everything was great. It's an embarrassment of riches."

It's been reported that McKay has so much material to work with, that he's considering recutting Anchorman 2 with entirely new jokes.

"[McKay] has said that there's 230 additional jokes, new, fresh jokes that haven't even been used it," Koechner said. "I know there's some big scenes that were amazing that didn't make the picture. I'm sure it will make its way out to the public's eyes."

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is in theaters now. Read our review of the film here.
