Bad Santa 2 won't be as good as the original, says Billy Bob Thornton

22 October 2014 5:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Billy Bob Thornton has given a frank opinion about the upcoming Bad Santa sequel.

The Fargo actor has signed up for a follow-up to the 2003 festive comedy, and despite looking forward to filming, he isn't sure it will match the original.

"We're just waiting for a script," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "We're never gonna beat the first one, but you got to get as close as you can. You just can't go and do it halfway so we're waiting for something that's close enough.

"It'll do real well, I imagine, and people will say, 'Well, it wasn't as good as the first one' and we'll say, 'Yeah, we knew it wouldn't be', but I think it should be fun and I think people who liked [the first one] will enjoy it and hopefully we'll get it off."

Bad Santa 2 will be directed by Doug Ellin, who is currently working on the Entourage movie. »

There's apparently life left in Bad Santa 2

21 October 2014 10:57 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Billy Bob Thornton has given an update on the missing, presumed dead, Bad Santa 2. Spoiler: it isn't dead.

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.

But then maybe there's a glimmer of hope. Billy Bob Thornton, who was the main reason to watch the first Bad Santa, has given an update on the project. And it still seems to be active.

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 »

'Bad Santa 2' Still Happening with Billy Bob Thornton

21 October 2014 6:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fargo star Billy Bob Thornton recently took part in a Hollywood Masters discussion for The Hollywood Reporter, where he offered an update on the long-awaited sequel Bad Santa 2.

We reported in May 2013 that Entourage creator Doug Ellin has come aboard to write the script and possibly direct the sequel. Billy Bob Thornton revealed that they are still waiting for a script to come in, while admitting that the follow-up won't be as good as the first.

"We're just waiting for a script, you know? We're never gonna beat the first one but you got to get as close as you can. You just can't go and do it haflway so we're waiting for something that's close enough. It'll do real well I imagine and people will say, 'Well, it wasn't as good as the first one' and we'll say 'Yeah, we knew it wouldn't be' but I think it »

Bad Santa 2 Still Coming Even if Billy Bob Thornton Admits It Won’t Be as Good as the First

21 October 2014 5:20 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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 »

Billy Bob Thornton Offers Skeptical Update On Bad Santa 2

21 October 2014 2:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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. »

This Week: DC throws down it's cinematic slate, Marvel tosses Iron Man into Captain America 3 and the landscape shifts into 2020.

What an interesting few days it has been for comic book superhero movies and their intertwined universes.

Teyonah Parris on Survivor’s Remorse, Mad Men, and Meeting LeBron

11 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Mad Men fans who miss their beloved Dawn — formerly secretary to Don Draper and Lou Avery, currently head of personnel at Sterling Cooper & Pryce — can now get their fix of actress Teyonah Parris, who plays the ever-patient ad-firm foot soldier, in a most unlikely milieu: inside the swanky Atlanta bachelor pad of fictitious NBA superstar Cam Calloway. Parris is co-starring on the new Starz comedy Survivor’s Remorse, which offers an Entourage-style peek inside the filthy-rich world of pro basketball. Parris plays Missy, the wife of Cam’s cousin/manager, with the same kind of insta-warmth that made Mad Men fans fall in love with her. Parris also stars in the Sundance hit Dear White People, which comes out October 17. In the midst of all this, Parris found a few minutes to talk to Vulture about LeBron James Mad Men’s costume department, and which member of the Survivor »

See New Movies By Adam McKay, Catherine Hardwicke and More For Free in a Theater This Month

8 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Going to the movies is expensive, and in this economy there’s less incentive than usual to make it to the multiplex just for a couple hours of entertainment, especially when so much of it is just reruns on the big screen (another Dracula, seriously?) — never mind all the other complaints you all have about the theatrical experience. The movies should be seen as a getaway from our troubles, just as they were for much of the Great Depression, but this time around we have so many other options to keep us distracted. Well, what if there was a movie playing in theaters for free? Yeah, you’ll still have to pay for a babysitter, gas, parking and concessions, if those things apply, but the main event costs you nothing on October 20th when you go out to see a bunch of new movies by Adam McKay (Anchorman), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), Jon M.

Review: Starz's 'Survivor's Remorse' aims to build a better 'Entourage'

3 October 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

To describe the new Starz comedy "Survivor's Remorse" as "NBA Entourage" sounds at once accurate and dismissive. Accurate because it's a show about a twentysomething phenom sharing his fame and fortune with his closest friends and family, dismissive because the actual "Entourage" was pretty horrible by the end. But "Entourage" was entertaining before it became bloated and self-congratulatory and contemptuous of its own fans. And its laziness prevented it from thoroughly exploring all those questions about the intersection of family and celebrity, and of staying true to your roots even as you have the money and opportunity to do things you couldn't even dream of growing up. There's a ton of untapped potential in the idea, as demonstrated by the four episodes of "Survivor's Remorse" (it debuts tomorrow at 9 p.m.) that I've seen. Created by Mike O'Malley(*) — a sports fan who, when he's not acting, is a writer on »

TV Review: ‘Survivor’s Remorse’

2 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Look past the marquee producers (including NBA superstar LeBron James and his manager), and “Survivor’s Remorse” is really just a new version of “Entourage,” with a predominantly African-American cast and a new big-money setting — namely, pro basketball. And that’s not a bad thing, at least once one gets past the exposition-heavy premiere, which feels too obligated to state every beat of the premise, including the underlying meaning of the title. Starz has ordered six episodes of this half-hour series, which hits just a high enough percentage to warrant a continuing spot on the roster.

As the show begins, Cam Calloway (Jamie T. Usher) is signing a megabucks deal with the NBA’s Atlanta franchise, one negotiated by his cousin and lifelong friend, Reggie (RonReaco Lee). The contract has allowed Cam to financially float his entire family, moving his mom (Tichina Arnold) out of the Dorchester, Mass., neighborhood in which they grew up, »
