‘Horrible Bosses’ sequel confirmed

The original cast and writing team are all set to return

A sequel to Horrible Bosses is in the works.

The workplace comedy was a surprise hit this summer, and now New Line are planning follow up. Writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have closed a deal, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Stars Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudekis are all set to return, with director Seth Gordon also in early talks for a comeback.

The film saw the three play harassed workers who made a pact to murder each others’ employers. Jennifer Aniston played a sex-obsessed dentist, with Kevin Spacey as a psychotic executive and Colin Farrell as the coke-snorting heir to his father’s business.

The writer duo are currently working on a new comedy vehicle for Steve Carrell and Jim Carrey.

Made for $35 million (£22 million), the film grossed $209 million (£134 million) worldwide. You can watch a clip of Aniston in action at the top of this page.
