Warner Bros. has dated the comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2 for next year’s Thanksgiving weekend. The pic will open in theaters on November 26, 2014, where it will square off directly against Fox’s animated film Home. Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and Disney’s sports drama McFarland will get a jump on the weekend by opening on November 21st, but Horrible Bosses 2 should prove to be a nice bit of R-rated counter-programming for the holiday.
Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis return for the follow-up, which will be helmed by That’s My Boy director Sean Anders. Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein penned the initial draft of the script, but Anders and his We’re the Millers co-writer John Morris subsequently performed a rewrite.
