Over the summer, Horrible Bosses was one of several R-rated comedies to find success at the box office, earning $209 million worldwide on a $35 million budget. Shortly after the movie's July opening, director Seth Gordon revealed that a sequel was in discussions, talks which were confirmed last night when Horrible Bosses II was reportedly given the greenlight, with all three leads (Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis) set to return for the sequel. Only, the cast isn't set to return — at least not yet.
While talking to Vulture, Sudeikis revealed that "none" of the cast are signed for the sequel, and the news that the cast were coming back "surprised all of us." another case of the cart before the horse >> Posted 01.11.12 by Ryan
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.

This year's 2011 San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) may be lacking the participation of some of the major movie studios that have helped to boost the convention's popularity in recent years with their star-studded Hall H movie panels and presentations — just weeks away, it's still not entirely clear which studios will be attending and which won't be.
However, the absence of some of the regulars has simply left a gap that other studios are eager to fill. Case in point: Legendary Entertainment. Despite being the co-producer of such comic book adaptations as Superman Returns, Watchmen, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and the currently in production The Dark Knight Rises (TDKR), Legendary has never held its own standalone panel at SDCC, but it will host one this year. Legendary sent out a press release yesterday announcing the panel and listing the four movies that it plans to promote: Pacific Rim, Seventh Son, Paradise Lost, and Mass Effect. more about Legendary's Comic-Con panel >> Posted 07.07.11 by BrentJS
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
In March, director Guillermo del Toro moved on to his upcoming monster movie Pacific Rim after Universal Studios canceled his adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness, despite the participation of James Cameron as producer and Tom Cruise in the lead role.
Written by Travis Beacham, Pacific Rim follows humanity fighting against an invasion of Godzilla-like monsters. Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba and, possibly, Charlie Day ("I'm not officially signed on," Day recently revealed) will play the human collective defending the planet. In an interview with Collider, del Toro recently discussed the movie's progress. del toro "not giving up" on Mountains of madness >> Posted 06.28.11 by Ryan
This summer's Horrible Bosses is dark comedy that explores what would happen if three friends decided to actually do what many people fantasize about and kill their bosses.
Nick (Jason Bateman) has a boss (Kevin Spacey) who won't give him a promotion and seems Hell bent on destroying him; Dale (Charlie Day), a dental assistant, is suffering from sexual harassment by his boss (Jennifer Aniston); and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) has a sleazy boss (Colin Farrell) who wants him to do all his dirty work — including firing other employees.
Warner Bros. released the first trailer last month, but the movie's first preview clip comes exclusively from MTV, as Sudeikis is hosting the network's upcoming MTV Movie Awards. The clip shows the three friends staking out Farrell's house in hopes of tailing him. watch the clip >> Posted 06.02.11 by Ryan
