The upcoming comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2 won’t be the only Bosses reunion happening in the near future. Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis have signed on to star in the Universal Pictures thriller One Night on the Hudson, with Bosses director Seth Gordon attached to take the helm.  The story centers on a straight-laced rookie cop and his jaded veteran partner as they are tasked with transporting a federal witness from New Jersey to Manhattan, only to encounter a number of obstacles along the way.  Gordon will be working from a spec screenplay by T.J. Fixman  Hit the jump for more.

Per THR, One Night on the Hudson is being developed as a starring vehicle for Day and Sudeikis with Gordon at the helm.  It’s an interesting choice for the comedy-skewing trio and it should be fascinating to see how they fare in the thriller genre.  Gordon is coming off the smashing box office success of last month’s comedy Identity Thief, and Universal is clearly happy to keep him in the fold.  Gordon, Day, Sudeikis, and Jason Bateman recently closed deals to return for Horrible Bosses 2, and one assumes the comedy follow-up will be Gordon’s next project.

Day will next be seen this summer in Guillermo del Toro’s Warner Bros. tentpole Pacific Rim, while Sudeikis stars opposite Jennifer Aniston in the comedy We’re the Millers, which opens this August, in addition to his ongoing SNL duties.
