It looks like both Dragon & Nighthawk and Shake & Bake are getting back together.
According to Bleeding Cool, who got their hands on a casting call, an Atlanta-based production is looking for a John C. Reilly look-alike. And what's currently filming in Atlanta? Why, "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is shooting in Atlanta. Super-dooper!
While this is based on some speculation on the part of Bleeding Cool, the move makes complete sense. Reilly has been part of the Will Ferrell-Adam McKay connection since "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," so a reunion seems in order, especially if the director wants to pack in as many comedians as possible into his sequel.

Speaking with MTV News' Josh Horowitz and VH1's Janell Snowden on the red carpet at the Oscars, "Zero Dark Thirty" star Jason Clarke played coy about his latest role, the lead in Matt Reeves' "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," only giving the vaguest detail about his character. "I play a guy who's trying to save humanity," he said, ruling out a motion-capture ape performance. (Or did he?!?!)
But it was the news about Clarke's project after "Apes" that piqued our interest. "Then I'm doing a film with Gaghan after that, Stephen Gaghan. It's called 'Candy Store,'" Clarke said. "I can't tell you what it's about."
Depending on which side of the "Prometheus" line you fall on, we've either got some good news or some bad news for you. Work has begun on a "Prometheus" sequel.
The Playlist spoke with Noomi Rapace during her press tour for "Dead Man Down," and the actress confirmed that she met with Ridley Scott earlier this month to talk sequel plans.
"They're working on the script. I met Ridley in London a couple of weeks ago," Rapace said. "I would love to work with him again and I know that he would like to do another one. It's just like we need to find the right story. I hope we will."

On the red carpet at the Oscars, MTV News' Josh Horowitz couldn't help but totally geek out with Zoe Saldana about her two sci-fi franchises, J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" and James Cameron's "Avatar," both of which are expecting sequels in the near to relatively near future.
But first thing's first, "Star Trek Into Darkness." What's up with Uhura and Spock, everyone's favorite love-birds aboard the Starship Enterprise? Where does their relationship pick up in May's sequel.
"I don't know. They're figuring things out" Saldana said. "They're definitely together, you know, because they work together on the Enterprise, and there's so much that's going on this time around with their situation as a crew, as the Enterprise, that it definitely is going to add a little stress to their relationship."
Magic is bound to happen when Ben Stiller's Tony Wonder makes a guest appearance on "Arrested Development" during the new season of the resurrected sitcom.
The news comes from EW.com, who report that the Wonder-ful Stiller will only appear (and disappear) in one episode of the show, which premieres on Netflix in May. Additional details on how his latest tricks will affect the Bluth family's resident magic man, GOB, are still unknown.
Stiller, who previously appeared on the series, joins already announced season 4 guest stars, Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Conan O'Brien, Isla Fisher, and John Slattery, who are all set to stop by the model home for the highly-anticipated, Netflix-only run of the cult-loved sitcom.
Don't let the title fool you — the parade is just beginning for "Parade's End."
Tonight (February 26) at 9 p.m. ET, HBO airs the first two installments of "Parade's End," director Susanna White and writer Tom Stoppard's five-part miniseries based on author Ford Madox Ford's novel series set in Europe during the threat of World War I. But the soldiers heading for the battlefield aren't the only ones at war; the miniseries focuses on the tumultuous marriage between Christopher and Sylvia Tietjens — played by future blockbuster stars Benedict Cumberbatch ("Star Trek Into Darkness") and Rebecca Hall ("Iron Man 3") — and what happens to their lives over the course of ten years.
Hall stopped by MTV News to talk about tonight's premiere of "Parade's End" and what viewers can expect to see. (Spoiler: expect the unexpected.)
While Seth MacFarlane was leading us into what felt like the longest Oscars ceremony ever this past Sunday, "Life of Pi"'s visual effects artists were protesting on the red carpet. Over 400 technicians outside the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood marched after well-known effects house Rhythm & Hues filed for bankruptcy, shortly after nabbing a BAFTA for Ang Lee's Oscar-winning film. Over 200 employees were laid off without pay after working over a year on Lee's mystical movie, which won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects that evening. Supervisor Bill Westenhofer tried to draw attention to the effects industry's struggles during his acceptance speech, but the obnoxious "Jaws" theme song played him off stage, and his microphone was cut.
After witnessing the embarrassing punch in the gut, film fans and industry professionals on Facebook and Twitter have been replacing their avatars with a green screen photo to show their support for the artists behind Hollywood's biggest blockbusters. Why are these prestigious studios and the outstanding talent behind them suffering when their projects are winning Oscar gold?
Here's a collaboration we never thought we'd see: Angelina Jolie has tapped Joel and Ethan Coen to rewrite her next directorial effort, "Unbroken."
That's right, The Hollywood Reporter reports that Jolie has managed to wrangle the Coen Brothers to make sure that her next film will be in the best shape it can possibly be. This movie has been in development at Universal for over 50 years, but Jolie only recently took the project from former helmer Francis Lawrence. If the movie had script issues, the Coens really are the right people to be asked to straighten them out.
As you know, J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" reboot dealt with alternate timelines within the fictional universe, but did you know that the movie itself had an alternate timeline, one where Mark Wahlberg starred as George Kirk, father of James T.?
When the actor spoke with Total Film recently about his latest film "Broken City," he revealed that Abrams had offered him the role, but Wahlberg ultimately turned it down because he couldn't understand the dialogue in the script.
"I remember him asking me to play Captain Kirk's father in 'Star Trek,' Wahlberg said. "I tried to read the script and I didn't understand the words of the dialogue or anything. I said, 'I couldn't do this. I think you're really talented, but I couldn't do it.' "
