Steve Carell wants to shoot Anchorman 3 in Ireland

Could Anchorman 3 be filmed in Ireland?

Having received the mother and father of all Irish welcomes back in 2013, Steve Carell and the rest of the cast want to shoot Anchorman 3 in Ireland.


Carell says it all comes down to the reception he, Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner received when they came over to promote Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

"After my experience in Dublin at the premiere, yes, I could see that happening," Carell told RTÉ.

"I could see us shooting Anchorman in Ireland. We were so embraced when we were there for the premiere.

"[It was] an unforgettable day."


Kristen Wiig, Carell's love interest in Anchorman 2, joked, "We would get no work done," with Carell responding, "It would be fine to get no work done. I loved it."

Will Ferrell recently said he'd consider playing Ron Burgundy for a third time, but doesn't expect it to happen any time soon.

The actor told Entertainment Weekly: "Never say never. At the same time, that’s what’s really fun about those characters — it could be 10 years from now and we can still play those guys and just be older – and even dumber.

"So that’s the beauty of that. There are no imminent plans to return to that as of yet, because … I can’t speak for Adam [McKay], but for myself, we still have a lot of other original ideas that we’d like to do."
