IT may have taken time to complete but Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis have all bee signed up for a sequel to Horrible Bosses, one of the surprise comedy hits of 2011.
Jamie Foxx is also in talks to return as murder consultant Motherf—-er Jones, while Seth Gordon is back in the director’s chair.
John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who worked on the first movie, penned the sequel.
The original movie followed put-upon workers and best friends Bateman, Day and Sudeikis as they attempted to off one another’s bosses – played by Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey – with mixed results.
Although Farrell’s character died in the movie, Aniston and Spacey survived, leaving the door open for possible returns. But according to The Hollywood Reporter, the sequel will have a new set of bosses.
Shooting on the film is due to begin in late summer with a possible 2014 summer release.
The lead trio all have movies in the works. Bateman is hot off box office hit Identity Thief, Sudeikis has recetly reunited with Aniston for comedy We’re The Millers and Day is among the cast of Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim.
