Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis Confirmed for ‘Horribles Bosses 2’

Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis set for Horrible Bosses 2Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis have finalized their deals to return for the New Line Cinema sequel Horrible Bosses 2. Jamie Foxx is also in negotiations to reprise his role from the 2011 hit Horrible Bosses.

The original movie followed Nick Hendricks (Jason Bateman), Dale Arbus (Charlie Day), and Kurt Buckman (Jason Sudeikis), three lifelong friends who are sick and tired of their awful employers. With the help of a "consultant" named Motherf&^er Jones (Jamie Foxx), the suburban trio hatch a plan to get rid of their bosses once and for all. The sequel will feature a brand new set of bosses, but there is reportedly room for the original bosses played by Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston to return. Colin Farrell's boss character met his untimely end in the first movie.

We reported in January that writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein are working on the script, with Seth Gordon returning to direct. Production is scheduled to begin sometime this summer. Horrible Bosses, which cost just $35 million to produce, took in over $200 million worldwide in the summer of 2011.

Horrible Bosses 2 was released November 26th, 2014.

    @corey Exactly. Except, unlike the Hangover, Horrible Bosses was actually good. Let's not ruin that,

      I'm not keen on a sequal happening, because I really, really liked the first one. If they could throw them in a different situation. Maybe Horrible Wives? Or Horrible Children? Or Horrible Parents? If it's a new set of bosses it'll be super lame. But I'll wait on further notice before I comment if I'm in or not.

          @ROFLitschristian The same thing was said when Hangover 2 was announced...and now it's a trilogy.

              A better twist would be for them to be the new horrible bosses but they still hav to answer to their superiors.

                The First movie was very funny, enjoyable and the cast had amazing chemistry, but a sequel of more of the same? They should leave it alone.

                        Guh, I respect all 3 of these guys, and they all had great chemistry together in the first, but no. It took me two or three times to enjoy the first one properly. It wasn't gut-busting funny, but it was really enjoyable. How the hell is this even going to work right?
