Aaanndd… they’re back!  Made at around $35 million and grossing north of $209 million worldwide, it’s no joke calling Seth Gordon‘s 2011 workplace comedy Horrible Bosses a hit.  Starring Jason BatemanCharlie Day and Jason Sudikis as down-trodden buds who plot to kill their maniacal bosses, studio New Line justifiably wanted a sequel despite the premise feeling somewhat sequel proof.  Well, when there’s a will, there’s a way as the principal cast will return for Horrible Bosses 2.  Though when that will involves hefty sums of money for the film’s stars, sometimes everyone involved has to wait.  And now, after more than a half a year of negotiations things look bright for more “boss-bashing.”  Hit the jump for more.

THR broke the jamie-foxx-horrible-bossesnews today that Bateman, Day and Sudeikis are now all set to reprise their roles in the sequel, with Jamie Foxx in talks to reprise his role as the man who mentored them in the art of boss disposal.  In the original film Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey played the titular bosses, only one of whom perished.  For the sake of those who haven’t seen the flick, we won’t reveal who it was here, but rest assured THR does make note of it.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who penned the original, worked on a draft of the sequel’s script earlier this year, with Gordon signing on as director once again to boot.  With New Line eying a late August production start, one assumes they’re happy with what Daley and Goldstein delivered.

So, what do you make of all this? Is this a blatant cash grab or could there be a legitimately funny second take to be had here?
