We just saw Nick (Jason Bateman) unknowingly step into a sex addiction group therapy session and the guys go at it with Kevin Spacey’s Dave Harken in prison, but now it’s time for seven additional Horrible Bosses 2 clips.  They’re not all big winners, but the “kidnaping” gag from the film’s trailers works wells and the chemistry between Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis still packs the power to entertain and put a smile on your face.  This new batch of clips also includes some material with Jamie Foxx as Nick, Dale and Kurt’s personal murder consultant Dean “Motherf*cker” Jones and Christoph Waltz as Burt Hanson, the investor who steals Nick, Dale and Kurt’s big idea, but it’s Chris Pine as Burt’s rather unhinged son, Rex, who looks to be one of the more promising supporting characters on the roster.

Hit the jump to check out all nine Horrible Bosses 2 clips for yourself.  The Sean Anders-directed film is set to arrive in theaters on November 26th and also stars Jennifer Aniston.

New HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 Clip: Jason Bateman Goes to Sex Addiction Therapy with Jennifer Aniston

Horrible Bosses 2 is inching closer to that November 26th release date, so Warner Bros. just unleashed another clip from the film.  Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day) and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) are back, but this time around, they want to be their own bosses so launch a business of their own, but based on what goes down in that clip featuring Kevin Spacey that dropped yesterday, it doesn’t look like they’re very good at it.

A second clip just surfaced showing what happens when Nick walks into Julia’s (Jennifer Aniston) sex addiction group therapy session under the impression that it’s an AA meeting.  I can’t say it’s laugh-out-loud funny, but Bateman, Day and Sudeikis still make for a charming trio and there’s also still some fun to be had with Aniston’s outrageous character as well.  Hit the jump to check out the new Horrible Bosses 2 clip.  The film also stars Chris Pine, Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx.

New Line has released the first trailer for Horrible Bosses 2, directed by Sean Anders (That’s My Boy).  Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis return to start a new business in the sequel.  When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) takes over, “the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son (Chris Pine) and ransom him to regain control of their company.”  I somehow missed the first installment from Seth Gordon back in 2011, but this new trailer makes me want to remedy that ASAP.  It’s also got the best use of “Turn Down for What” since, well, DJ Snake & Lil Jon’s video.

Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Spacey also return in Horrible Bosses 2, scheduled for release on November 26th.  Hit the jump to watch the first Horrible Bosses 2 trailer.

We learned last week that Warner Bros. wanted Chris Pine to play one of the horrible bosses in Horrible Bosses 2.  Today we can confirm the deal has closed.  According to Variety, Pine will play “half of a father-son duo who steal the main characters’ idea for a new invention.”  WB reached out to Christoph Waltz to play Pine’s father, but a scheduling issue will likely prevent Waltz from taking the role.

Jason BatemanCharlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis will return for the sequel to the 2011 surprise hit about three men who conspire to kill each other’s unbearable employers.  After Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon dropped out, Sean Anders (We’re the Millers) stepped in.  Horrible Bosses 2 opens November 26, 2014.

Chris Pine Could Be a Terrible Employer in HORIBBLE BOSSES 2

by     Posted 1 year, 46 days ago

I really enjoyed the first Horrible Bosses, and I’m hoping the sequel can live up to the original.  There currently aren’t any details on the new installment, but some new bad bosses are on deck.  Deadline reports that Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine are being eyed to play a father/son duo of horrible bosses, but Waltz will probably be unavailable due to scheduling.  That leaves Pine, who could be a good fit provided they’re willing to find an unexpected twist like they did for Colin Farrell.  Instead of taking his good looks to go the easy, smarmy jock route, they plastered him with a comb-over and a raging coke habit.

I was hoping that the sequel would work from the script by Horrible Bosses screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, but after Seth Gordon dropped out from directing, Sean Anders came on board and rewrote the script with We’re the Millers co-writer John Morris.  I enjoyed that movie, and since a large part of the original’s appeal was the improv between stars Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis, there’s reason to be optimistic.  Horrible Bosses 2 opens November 26, 2014.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein make for an unusual pair. Daley is best known as a television actor, starring on the cult TV show Freaks and Geeks and now on Bones. Goldstein is a well traveled sitcom writer, contributing to shows ranging from The PJs to The New Adventures of Old Christine. Together the two have become one of the most in-demand and successful screenwriting teams in Hollywood. Their produced work covers a range of genres: the adult dark comedy Horrible Bosses, the broad comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and this weekend’s release Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

In the following interview with Daley and Goldstein, the writing duo discusses the genesis of their writing partnership, the re-writing process on Cloudy 2 and the difficulties of writing for animation. In addition Daley and Goldstein gave updates on a number of their upcoming projects: Horrible Bosses 2, Vacation (the remake to which they’re still slated to direct), their in-development pilot Punching Out and the just-sold-to-New-Line Bad Santa-esque The Bus Driver.

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 AndersHorrible 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.  If you missed Steve’s recent video interview with Bateman in which the actor spoke briefly about the project, click here.

Jason Bateman Talks Directorial Debut BAD WORDS, the Soundtrack, HORRIBLE BOSSES 2, Shawn Levy’s THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU, and More at TIFF 2013

by     Posted 1 year, 76 days ago

jason-bateman-bad-words-interview-slice

One of my favorite films at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival is Jason Bateman‘s directorial debut Bad WordsAndrew Dodge’s awesome script centers on a high-school drop-out (Bateman) who uses a loophole to compete in an 8th grade spelling bee, enraging teachers and parents alike, but befriending an awkward young contestant along the way.  And while the film could easily be a family friendly, PG movie that plays it safe, I’m happy to report Bateman has crafted a wholly R-rated movie that’s loaded with inappropriate dialogue and hysterical situations.  It also explains why Focus Features quickly snapped it up during an all night bidding war following the world premiere.  Bad Words also stars Kathryn Hahn, Allison Janney, Ben Falcone, Philip Baker Hall and Rohan Chandz. 

The day after the premiere I got to sit down with Bateman for an extended video interview.  He talked about the warm reception for the film, landing distribution, marketing plans, the soundtrack (which is fantastic), working with child actor Rohan Chand, deleted scenes, and more.  In addition, Bateman talked about the Horrible Bosses sequel, the audience perception of The Change-Up, and Shawn Levy‘s This Is Where I Leave You.  Hit the jump to watch.

THAT’S MY BOY Director Sean Anders to Helm HORRIBLE BOSSES 2

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.
