'Anchorman 2' Teaser Poster Offers Amputee Mystery (Photo)

Anchorman 2 Poster - P 2012

A one-sheet for the long-awaited sequel to the local news send-up features six legs -- for a four man team.

Given that the end of the first Anchorman movie foretold the futures of the Channel 4 News Team -- Ron Burgundy would be on network news while Brick Tamland would eventually work for President George W. Bush -- a sequel to the film would seemingly fill in the blanks, detailing the subsequent journeys of the Action News crew. 

From the looks of a new teaser poster, it would seem that their stories were not without tragedy and quite a bit of physical trauma.

VIDEO: Will Ferrell Announces Anchorman Sequel on Conan

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, as the film is now titled, is releasing an early promotional assault on Wednesday, with a teaser trailer attached to Sacha Baron Cohen's The Dictator and this vague-yet-curious one-sheet. While star Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay are still busy coming up with a plot, they clearly intend to have amputations take up a few of the film's beats. 

The poster features six legs and four different styles, meaning that clearly, two members of the four man crew lost a limb. Alternatively, there are only three men there, and one of them has very poor taste in slacks and shoes.
