Steve Carell wants Anchorman 3 to be shot in Ireland.
After the cast visited Dublin back in 2013 they felt “so embraced” that Carell is tempted to film the third instalment here. Carell, Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner were in Dublin for the Irish premiere of Anchorman 2. He also noted that especially for John C Reilly who said in March that he has applied for Irish citizenship.
“After my experience in Dublin at the premiere, yes, I could see that happening”, Carell said.
“I could see us shooting Anchorman in Ireland. We were so embraced when we were there for the premiere.
“[It was] an unforgettable day.”
Carell’s Despicable Me 3 co-star Kristen Wiig interjected, “We would get no work done”, joking that she would angle her way into the film.
“It would be fine to get no work done. I loved it”, Carell added.
