With the original hit comedy taking a very healthy $209m. at the box office three years ago, it wasn’t long before Warner Bros. confirmed that Horrible Bosses 2 was getting the green light.
Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis are of course reprising their leading roles once more, and after catching a great first teaser a couple of months back, the studio has launched a brilliant new trailer.
Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business in “Horrible Bosses 2.” But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.
Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Aniston, and Kevin Spacey are reprising their roles from the first film, with Christoph Waltz, Chris Pine, and Jonathan Banks completing the cast alongside the leading trio.
Sean Anders (Sex Drive) is directing from a script he co-wrote with John Morris (We’re the Millers) and John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the duo responsible for Horrible Bosses.
Horrible Bosses 2 will be released in the US on November 26th, before crossing the Atlantic that weekend, arriving in the UK on November 28th, sure to dominate the Thanksgiving box office.
