Billy Bob Thornton is expected to return in the title role from the 2003 comedy hit Bad Santa. There is no word whether other co-stars such as Lauren Graham or Brett Kelly will return. The original comedy took in $76 million worldwide, from just a $23 million budget.
Back in February, Billy Bob Thornton had said they planned on shooting the sequel this summer. It isn't known when production will begin now, though, since Steve Pink is taking another crack at the screenplay.
