John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to Script HORRIBLE BOSSES 2; Bateman, Day, and Sudeikis Expected to Return

John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein Horrible Bosses slice

I placed Horrible Bosses on my Top 10 of 2011 because not only was it hilarious, but because it had staying power.  New Line Cinema is now moving forward on a sequel and have re-hired original writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.  According to THR, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis are also expected to return, and New Line is also trying to bring back director Seth Gordon.  I’m glad Daley, Goldstein, and possibly Gordon are returning, but what sells me on a sequel is brining back the Bateman, Day, and Sudeikis.  I don’t mean to diminish the work of the screenwriters or director, but Horrible Bosses works because of the chemistry between those guys.  I have no idea where a sequel could go, but as long as the lead trio is back, I’ll stay interested.

Bosses was a strong hit with a worldwide gross of $209 million off a $35 million budget.  Daley and Goldstein have stayed hot with their screenwriting; the duo was hired to pen the sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and they also wrote the upcoming comedy Burt Wonderstone starring Steve Carell and Jim Carrey.
