It feels like we've been writing about a potential sequel to Bad Santa for a good few years now, without any sign of the film itself moving forward. It's become one of those projects that gets talked about, but is looking decreasingly likely to happen.
Speaking at Loyola Marymount University, Thornton said that "we're just waiting for a script", adding that "we're never going to beat the first one, but you got to get as close as you can. You can't just go and do it half way, so we're waiting for something that's close »
I liked Bad Santa when I saw it in 2003. I actually haven't seen it since then so I have no idea how it ages or holds up or any of that, but apparently there's an appetite for a sequel. Makes sense, I guess I'd probably check out Bad Santa 2 if it happens. A few years back Steve Pink was going to helm, but then those duties fell to Doug Ellin. Ellin is still busy wrapping up the artistic juggernaut of the Entourage movie, so even though there's a chance his Kubrickian penchant for perfection will keep him in the editing room for another few years on that project, one could also reasonably assume he'd make time for this sooner or later. If the script is good. That's what they're waiting on. Even though Billy Bob Thornton himself wisely admits there's no way they can top the first one (the »

Bad Santa 2 has been discussed for years, despite the fact that original writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa have moved on to their own directing career and there’s no indication that original director Terry Zwigoff will return. Rather, Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink was linked to the film, both as writer and director, […]

2003’s debauched yuletide comedy, Bad Santa, dashed any misguided notions that those who dress up to play the jolly chap are without issues. Billy Bob Thornton’s take on the rotund fellow completely veered away from saccharine stereotypes of a happy man who only wants to deliver cheer to everyone. Instead, his store-front Santa was a drunken slob who chased women and shirked his duties whenever possible.
In short, it was brilliant, and thus, rumours began to circulate about a second trip in his kinky sleigh for Bad Santa 2. The latest news we’ve had on the project landed in May 2013, when Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink apparently vacated the director’s chair to make way for Entourage creator Doug Ellin. At the time, Ellin was also reported to be working on a re-write of Johnny Rosenthal’s original script, which brings us up to date with the status of the project. »

The sequel to Hot Tub Time Machine was just pushed back to February 20th, 2015 after originally being set for release on Christmas Day, and now director Steve Pink already has his next comedy lined up as Deadline reports MGM has picked up a pitch for a project called Cop Swap. The studio acted fast to pick up the pitch with Pink attached to direct and also write the script with his writing partner Jeff Morris. The movie will focus on a real-life international exchange program of major metropolitan police departments across America that allow cops from foreign cities to essentially intern as part of the Lapd. More below! These cops from far out of town just don't fit in in their home country, and they hope to learn how to fit in and get some real police time with the world famous Lapd. It's there that the unfortunate cop and »

MGM has picked up a pitch from writer-director Steve Pink for the police comedy Cop Swap, after a bidding war broke out over the project this weekend.
Steve Pink is writing the script with his partner Jeff Morris, which is based on an actual international exchange program where cops from all over the world come to America. The story focuses on a black sheep Lapd cop, who is assigned to babysit a group of international cops, all of whom are misfits back home, and are undergoing a one-year internship. They all stumble upon a major crime being committed. The script deal is said to be mid six-figures against low seven-figures, which will be even higher when factoring in Steve Pink's fee as a director.
Every studio in town was interested in this pitch, but Deadline reports the pitches were sent out to just two studios per day, with Fox »

This isn't all that surprising. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is now foregoing its original December 25th, 2014 release date and moving to February 20th. This makes sense for a few reasons, the first of which is that it needs to get out of the way of Seth Rogen and James Franco's The Interview, which is shaping up to be something of a comedic juggernaut (at least in terms of my perception - it feels like awareness is high for that one). Also telling? My first thought when I saw this news was, "that was supposed to come out on Christmas?" It doesn't feel like they've been aggressively marketing the movie (aside from the trailer) and I feel like February is safer ground for this franchise anyway. Paramount also moved Scouts vs. Zombies from that date and placed it on October 30th, 2015, also a move of confidence in that horror comedy it looks like. »

A to Z‘s hopeful romantic Andrew has gotten the girl, but will he keep her?
After locking lips at the end of the pilot, Andrew and Zelda must now deal with a morning after of sorts as Episode 2 (airing this Thursday at 9:30/8:30c on NBC) picks up the very next day. And there’s a bit of a hiccup.
“He was supposed to go out on a date with someone else,” star Cristin Milioti teases.

It’s a thought that has persisted in cinema for well over a century. Love is what motivates characters; it’s a dream they want to realize, a reality they have to face, the content of their musings in their nightly diary entries.
Decades of cinema have seen the nature of other genres completely overturned. More and more, horrors are gearing towards high-concept supernatural thrillers over human killers; comedies are willing to get raunchier, with a whole lot more swearing; action movies are only too eager to show off brutal set-pieces; and comic book movies and sci-fi films have the effects capable of making the unreal real.
But romance? How much has that changed? And how much do we really want it to? »

Landing at Christmas this year, the sequel sees the gang accidentally transported into the future, and though they’re minus one John Cusack this time around, this first red-band trailer suggests it won’t miss a beat.

Holy crap, there's another Hot Tub Time Machine. Above is the red band trailer (Cover Your Eyes, Children) for Hot Tub Time Machine 2 , which gets festive for audiences this Christmas. The weirdest element of this trailer? Continuity! This looks like it picks up directly after the first film where (Spoiler Alert For Hot Tub Time Machine) Nick (Craig Robinson) and Lou (Rob Corddry) exploited time travel to become rich. Because this is a dopey sequel, John Cusack and Lizzy Caplan are nowhere to be found . one could argue that Cusack was sort of slumming it with the first film, though Hot Tub Time Machine, in many ways, has more integrity than this year's The Bag Man . His High Fidelity collaborator Steve Pink had no qualms about returning from the first film to direct the sequel, however, which is again written by Josh Heald. Really, Cusack and Caplan are the »
