We're the Millers

Last year's late summer comedy We're the Millers starring Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston was not only a surprise hit at the box office (it pulled in nearly $270 million worldwide on a budget of just $37 million), but it's one of the better written comedies in a long time. Now New Line is keen on getting the faux family back together for a sequel, and the Warner Bros. based company has just hired Due Date and Made of Honor writer Adam Sztykiel to script the sequel, but there's no indication of where the story might make the misfits turned family unit, and we're not exactly sure this comedy needs a sequel at all. Read on!

If you haven't seen the first film, read no further if you don't want to spoil anything. As for the potential story in this sequel, we can see some new danger coming from drug cartel boss Ed Helms getting released from prison and finding the family under witness protection. But at the same time, comedy sequels are hard to make work, and rarely live up to the original. THR says Sudeikis and Aniston are expected to return along with their makeshift kids played by Will Poulter and Emma Roberts, but no official deals are in place. In addition, director Rawson Marshall Thurber will return behind the camera, so that's a plus. Stay tuned.

I think a sequel could work well for this series, something akin to a parody of the National Lampoons Vacation films where they send the same family to different locations but with a similar plot to the previous iteration.
