Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day & Jason Bateman for 'Horrible Bosses 2'
After delivering one of the best raunchy comedies of 2011 (easily one of the five best comedies of the year in general), it sounds like Horrible Bosses will bring about some even more terrible supervisors on the big screen sometime down the road. THR has word that writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the duo behind the original film, have been hired by New Line Cinema to pen a sequel. In addition, it's expected that stars Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day and Jason Bateman will all return, and the original film's helmer Seth Gordon is also in early talks with the studio to get back in the director's chair.
From here on out, beware of spoilers from the original film. Considering the aforementioned comedic trio haphazardly dispatched with their respective awful head honchos (played by Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell and Jennifer Aniston), it's not clear if they will come into play at all. Spacey's character ended up getting arrested, Aniston was blackmailed into leaving her job with Day and Farrell was gunned down. Would the gang really need to kill a whole new set of bosses this again? Comedy sequels are a difficult animal to tame, so I'm a bit leery about seeing another one, especially after the disappointment that was The Hangover Part II. Of course, I'm always up for being surprised with another great comedy. What do you think?
