Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, HORRIBLE BOSSES 2
The workplace is about to get pretty horrible. Again.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, after over a year of negotiations, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day have officially signed on to star in the upcoming sequel to the 2011 runaway hit HORRIBLE BOSSES.
In addition, the publication reports that the ever-busy Jamie Foxx has also inked a deal to reprise his role as 'Motherf***er Jones," The Master of murder.
HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 has also enlised original screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, as well as Seth Gordon, who helmed the first entry in what's now apparently a franchise.
The studios are eyeing a late-summer production kick-off date, most likely for a Summer 2014 release to capitalize on the first film's success in the 'hot' market.
