SETH Gordon has pulled out of directing Horrible Bosses 2.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the director has withdrawn from the follow-up citing a schedule conflict. He is reported to have told leading trio Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day on Wednesday (August 7, 2013).

New Line is now hunting for a replacement as the distributor still intends to have the film ready to start shooting this autumn.

Gordon directed the original Horrible Bosses, which was released in 2011 and proved a massive hit, rossing $209 million worldwide.

His other current projects include forthcoming ABC television comedy The Goldbergs.
