After playing the heroic Captain Kirk in blockbusters Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness, Chris Pine is stepping into a villainous role in the comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2.

The actor will play one half of a father-son duo who steal an invention idea from the three main characters, played by Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis. Jamie Foxx is also returning as Motherf---er Jones, the hitman these three friends hired to kill their bosses in the original Horrible Bosses.

Sean Anders (Sex Drive) is directing from a script by Horrible Bosses writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein. Brett Ratner and Jay Stern are producing, with John Cheng and John Rickard serving as executive producers. We reported last month that production is already under way.

Chris Pine will next be seen in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, opening on Christmas Day.
