There are plenty of great-looking hard-R comedies headed our way this summer, but Horrible Bosses has a cast that makes it a serious contender for the best of the bunch. The film stars Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charile Day as a trio of hapless employees who agree to kill each others’ bosses played by Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, and Jennifer Aniston, respectively. As if that cast wasn’t impressive enough, the film also stars Jamie Foxx (playing a character named “Motherfucker Jones”), Donald Sutherland, “Old Spice guy” Isaiah Mustafa, and Julie Bowen.
The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly has some new images from the film and you can check them out after the jump along with a full plot synopsis. Horrible Bosses is due out July 8th. Click here for Steve’s recent interview with Bateman, Day, and Sudeikis.
Thanks to The Playlist for the scans.
Spacey plays Harken, the boss of Bateman’s character, Nick, and described as the worst of the three horrible bosses.
Aniston is Julia, a nymphomaniac dentist and the boss of Day’s character, Dale.
Farrell is Bobby, rival to Kurt (Sudeikis) and the coke-addled son to Kurt’s beloved mentor (Sutherland).
Here’s the official synopsis for Horrible Bosses:
For Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day), the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses (Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston) into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con (Jamie Foxx), the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers…permanently. There’s only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.
