Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day are back in 'Horrible Bosses 2,' and these working stiffs have some new adversaries to face. As New Line Cinema announced the start of production in Los Angeles, California (from which we've obtained the first set photos), the studio also revealed the official plot synopsis and the full involvement of newcomers Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz.
Horrible Bosses 2
Though it was recently reported that 'Django Unchained' star Christoph Waltz would not be starring in the upcoming sequel, we are pleased to share the news that 'Horrible Bosses 2' has managed to hire Waltz after all. Waltz will be playing a bad guy -- of course -- alongside Chris Pine, who will play his son in one of the most inspired casting choices in recent memory.
In the first 'Horrible Bosses' film, the team of Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day faced down a trio of awful employers and rode the box office to the tune of $117 million. Since those bosses were played by Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell, the upcoming 'Horrible Bosses 2' will have to up the ante. With Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine being eyed for the sequel, consider the ante officially upped.
When 'Horrible Bosses' came out in 2011, it was one of a wave of comedies unleashed that summer (including 'Bridesmaids,' 'The Hangover Part II' and 'Bad Teacher'), but it was also one of the most successful, as it made over a hundred million at the box office on a smaller budget. Though it's hard to know how Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman could have new horrible bosses, all have signed on for a sequel.
