Posted Thursday December 6, 2012 1:30 PM GMT

It’s one of the most anticipated films of 2013, and “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” could be getting an extra dose of female funniness.

According to a report, “Bridesmaids” babe Kristen Wiig is currently in contract negotiations to join in on the fun.

Wiig would play the love interest of Brick Tamland, the dopey weatherman played by “The Office” legend Steve Carell.

Meanwhile, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate, David Koechner, and Will Ferrell will all reprise their roles from “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.” Filming is slated to begin in early 2013 with an October release date.
