Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis are all returning for “Horrible Bosses 2”. Fresh off his biggest hit yet, “Identity Thief”, which stars Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, director Seth Gordon will return also. Jamie Foxx may return as well for the sequel. I’ve got to be honest, I didn’t care for “Horrible Bosses”. It was a potentially hilarious concept, but I felt that potential went largely unfulfilled. But maybe they’ll do better? Though the history of comedies aren’t kind to sequels in both box office numbers and quality. Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farell played the title bosses in the original. Hopefully this won’t be a ‘The Hangover: Part II”.
