Out of all the sequels to raunchy hit comedies currently in the works (22 Jump Street, Bad Teacher 2, Ted 2), one of the ones I’m most cautiously curious about is Warner Bros.’ Horrible Bosses 2, which began filming in September.
Though the original was entertaining enough, the film’s one-joke premise did not, at first glance, appear to lend itself well to a follow-up. Director Sean Anders (That’s My Boy) has evidently come to terms with this and worked with returning writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to come up with a worthwhile hook. Today, Warner Bros. gave us our first idea of what Horrible Bosses 2 will look like.
Check out the official plot synopsis below:

A few weeks ago, Chris Pine (Star Trek Into Darkness, Rise of the Guardians) was confirmed for Horrible Bosses 2, after rumours he and Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained) were to play the sequel's father/son duo who "would terrorize the main characters as their new bosses." Variety confirmed Pine to star, but Waltz was believed to have pulled out due to scheduling conflicts.
The same source has now confirmed Waltz's signature, and he will now appear in the comedy sequel as Pine's father. Which raises the question: cool accent or no cool accent?
Waltz and Pine will join returning cast members Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), Charlie Day (Pacific Rim) and Jason Sudeikis (We're the Millers), with Sean Anders (We're the Millers) replacing Seth Gordon (Identity Thief) in the director's chair.

Update: Now it looks like Christoph Waltz will have room in his schedule for Horrible Bosses 2. New Line confirmed today that Waltz is in talks to play Chris Pine‘s father in the awful boss sequel. A deal is expected to close soon. Previous, Oct. 9 Pm: Colin Farrell was the most awful boss in Horrible Bosses, but New Line is trying hard to top him in the sequel. Word is they have courted Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz to play a father/son awful boss tandem for the next film. I’m now being told by insiders that Waltz won’t be available, but Pine might do it. It’s too bad they offed Farrell because, like more cowbell, I coulda used a little more Bobby, that bloated and insensitive boss’ son who fired the guy in the wheelchair and made sure to take his handicap parking pass. Sean Anders is directing the sequel, »
