It seems that the 2011 hit comedy Horrible Bosses will get a sequel after lengthy negotiations to reunite the principle cast (Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jamie Foxx) proved successful. No plot details have been announced yet, but the film will get a new set of devious bosses, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Here’s the scoop:
After more than half a year of negotiations, New Line has closed deals to reunite Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis for a sequel to Horrible Bosses, the surprise hit comedy released in 2011.
Jamie Foxx is also likely to return and is negotiations to reprise his role as murder consultant Motherf—er Jones for the pic, which will see Seth Gordon back in the director’s chair.
Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey played the horrible bosses. Farrell’s character died in the movie, but Aniston’s and Spacey’s did not. The sequel will have a brand new set of bosses, but there is room for Aniston and Spacey to make cameos.
The original focused on three exhausted and under-appreciated workers (Bateman, Day and Sudeikis) who decide to try and get rid of their obnoxious bosses, with mixed outcomes.
Horrible Bosses 2 is currently scheduled to commence principle photography in late summer and will be produced by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour Trilogy) and Jay Stern (Horrible Bosses).
