After the departure of original director Seth Gordon earlier last month, New Line Cinema has found a replacement to take the helm of the comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2. Per THR, We’re the Millers co-writer Sean Anders will direct the follow-up, while Anders’ Millers co-writer John Morris has joined the project as an executive producer. The duo recently did a rewrite on the Horrible Bosses 2 script, which was initially penned by Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. This will not be Anders’ first time behind the camera, as he previously helmed Sex Drive and last year’s That’s My Boy. Anders and Morris are coming off the strong box office success of We’re the Millers, and New Line appears to have sparked to their rewrite work.
Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, and Jamie Foxx are all onboard to reprise their roles from the first film for Horrible Bosses 2, though no timetable is given for when production might finally get underway.
