'The Heat', 'Anchorman 2' Updates

Kristen Wiig has been officially added to the 'Anchorman 2' aka 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues' cast. There had been rumors she would be, but no conformation until today. The sequel has quite the cast now as Wiig joins the original cast of Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and David Koechner among other comedy favorites. The target release date for the film seems to be December 20, 2013 though that could always change. The current rumor is she will be playing Brick Tamland's wife. I would love to see the interaction between Carell and Wiig, two of the best comedic actors in the game right now.

Applegate commented on Twitter, "So excited Kristen Wiig has joined our cast for anchorman2. Going 2 b best movie ever made. Besides the best movies ever made."

'The Heat' starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy has been pushed back to June 28, 2013, right smack in the middle of the summer movie season. This was apparently due to such strong test reactions. I've been excited about the film since hearing Bullock & McCarthy would team up. Looks like the studio has the same amount of confidence to put it up against the summer blockbusters.

These are two of the more anticipated and buzzed about comedies of the year, and both should be a nice boost to the Box Office.
