One of the best comedies of the last decade, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is finally back for a sequel. 

The sequel will bring back the original film's stars which include Will Ferrell and Steve Carell which has fans very excited.  

If that is not enough, check out this A list line up of cameos for the new movie: Harrison Ford, Liam Neeson, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Jim Carrey, Sasha Baron Cohen, Kirsten Dunst, Nicole Kidman, and John C. Reilly have all been spotted in Atlanta in recent weeks filming their scenes. Rapper Kanye West will reportedly even make a cameo.

The currently unnamed film is shooting on location in downtown Atlanta, but they have transformed the section of town into a movie set designed to look like New York City as it appeared more than three decades ago complete with New York taxi cabs, payphones and storefronts.  

On Thursday more than a dozen actors were filming in Woodruff Park, holding with baseball bats and hockey sticks while filming a large brawl scene that is sure to be an epic moment of the second film.

The first Anchorman movie was a comedy about a dimwit news reader and his crew of misfit colleagues. 

Anchorman 2 will be one of the most anticipated movies of 2013.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues is being directed by Adam McKay and is slated for release on December 20, 2013.
