'Horrible Bosses 2' Will Be a Thing

The three lead actors from the 2011 hit summer comedy Horrible Bosses, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day, all just signed deals to return for a sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The actors were in negotiations to return for over half a year. Director Seth Gordon, who directed the original and also the recent Jason Bateman vehicle Identity Thief, will also be coming back. Jamie Foxx, who played Motherfucker Jones in the first movie, is currently in negotiations to do the sequel, as well. Horrible Bosses grossed $209 million worldwide off a low $35 million budget and was the third highest-grossing comedy domestically behind The Hangover II and Bridesmaids. Filming is set to begin late this summer, which means Jason Sudeikis leaving SNL in May just went from "very likely" to "very, very likely."

    Good, Horrible Bosses was the funniest movie of '11. And I hope Sudeikis doesn't leave SNL now mostly because of Maine Justice!
