With the success of the comedy hit, Horrible Bosses, screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have signed on to make the sequel, Horrible Bosses 2, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Horrible Bosses only cost $35 million to make and grossed over $209 million worldwide, it's fair to say that's reason enough to green light a sequel.
In the original, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis are three miserable employees who plan to off their no good bosses, Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell. They enlist the help of a murder adviser played by Jamie Foxx. No word on which members of the cast will return but Batemen, Sudeikis, and Day are expected back along with director Seth Gordon.

The R–comedies of the summer season have found remarkable success so far, with The Hangover 2 edging out Bridesmaids for the top grosser with $527 million worldwide (though Bridesmaids' $168 million-and-counting worldwide take is also impressive). While Bad Teacher couldn't match up against the family–friendly 3-D of Cars 2, the Cameron Diaz comedy still fared well, opening to $31 million last weekend.
Warner Bros. is hoping to continue the success they had found with The Hangover Part II with director Seth Gordon's Horrible Bosses, which follows three friends (Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis) who band together to kill their respective employers (Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston, and Kevin Spacey). The premise certainly seems like one audiences can get behind, since many are likely have the same fantasy. To help promote the movie, the studio has released three preview clips to Yahoo! to give audiences a taste of the movie before it opens next month. watch the clips >> Posted 06.29.11 by Ryan

The third friend will be a womanizer who loses his job after his boss dies and is replaced, but is yet to be cast. more on the Horrible Bosses cast >> Posted 05.13.10 by Ryan
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Forbes announced Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston as the biggest female moneymakers in Hollywood this past year. Many people are, of course, already taking note of the Brad Pitt connection. From June 2008 to June 2009 Jolie pulled in $27 million, while Aniston earned $25 million.
Jolie's big paycheck comes courtesy of Wanted, which grossed $341 million worldwide, and an advance for her role as a CIA agent in Phillip Noyce's upcoming Salt. Aniston's money comes from box-office winner Marley & Me, as well as her role in SmartWater commercials. She also received an advance for The Baster, where she will star alongside Juliette Lewis, Jason Bateman, and Jeff Goldblum.
Completing the top 10 are Meryl Streep, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cameron Diaz, Sandra Bullock, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Drew Barrymore, and Renée Zellweger.
THR also noted that the $183 million earned by the Top 10 women falls well short of the $393 million taken in by the Top 10 men. Harrison Ford topped that list with $65 million. Posted 07.02.09 by reelz
You've got to give it to Jennifer Aniston. Having been left for the beautiful Earth Mother goddess and her flock of babies, a weaker actress might have rethought the direction of her career. She might have eschewed starring in petsploitation films (Marley and Me) or He's Just Not That Into You. And a weaker woman definitely would have avoided signing onto a movie where she gets impregnated by a turkey baster, while Brangelina trots the twins 'round the world. But, God bless her, not Jen. Girlfriend is like, "Screw it."
Aniston has signed on to star opposite Jason Bateman in The Baster, a fertility comedy from the dudes who brought you Blades of Glory. Aniston plays a neurotic woman who wants to have a baby via artificial insemination. Bateman plays her best friend who secretly replaces her donor's semen with his own.
We can't wait for the press tour on this one. We can already imagine the mag covers, the awkward moments talking turkey basters with Letterman, the tabloids seizing on a fresh opportunity to dredge up the Jen vs. Angie stories yet again. Oh the movie magic! Posted 02.06.09 by reelz
