Sean Anders’ Horrible Bosses 2 opens tomorrow with Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis reprising their roles from the first film. This time around they decide to be their own bosses by setting out on their own entrepreneurial venture. When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) steals their idea, they decide to kidnap his son (Chris Pine) and hold him for ransom. Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, and Jamie Foxx all return for the sequel. While Horrible Bosses 2 isn’t going to win any awards, I’ll admit that I laughed a lot mostly from the great chemistry between Bateman, Day and Sudeikis. For more on the film, watch some clips, the trailer, or here’s all our previous coverage.
At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive interview with Jason Bateman. He talked about not wanting to make a “stinky sequel,” what it was like on set working with Sudeikis and Day, if he likes to check out the movie while it’s in the editing room, how it’s going on his second feature, The Family Fang, his hope it will premiere at Telluride, working with Shawn Levy on This is Where I Leave You, the status of IPO Man, what he learned directing Bad Words that he wants to apply on future projects, and a lot more. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
