Filmmaker Adam McKay revealed a “really scary” incident involving actor Will Ferrell on the set of Anchorman 2.

During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, McKay recalled filming a scene with Ferrell that briefly went awry.

“It was involving Will, and it was really scary,” McKay said. “It was a scene where Ron Burgundy was going to hang himself. It was a silly joke. For a half a second, the rig didn’t operate properly and there was actual tension on the rope, but then it gave way and Will was OK.”

“Thank God no one was hurt. We were sick about it for two days. We said, ‘All right, let’s stop. Let’s have a meeting.’”

The Big Short director recalled the incident after the interviewer asked him about the fatal shooting on the set of Alec Baldwin’s movie Rust.
