Warner Bros announced that "Horrible Bosses 2" is now filming in Los Angeles and has unveiled the full cast and the official plot synopsis for the sequel, which will be directed by Sean Anders (That's My Boy, Sex Drive). Plot: Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business. But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor's adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company. Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis all return to play Nick, Dale and Kurt. The role of the investor will be played by Christoph Waltz, while the son will be Chris Pine. Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Fox and Kevin Spacey will also reprise their roles. "Horrible Bosses 2 »
About two weeks ago, it was reported that Chris Pine (Star Trek) And Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) were in talks to play a father/son boss team in the upcoming "Horrible Bosses" sequel. Pine was later confirmed to be on board, but Waltz's busy schedule forced him to drop out of negotiations. Now comes word that Waltz changed him mind and is now finalizing his deal to join the cast, which is already comprised of Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jamie Fox, Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey. "Horrible Bosses 2" will be directed by Sean Anders (That's My Boy) and is set to hit theaters on November 26th, 2014. »
We're rarely fans of hybrid fashion (the skort didn't survive the '90s for a reason), but Ciara's mini-meets-hoodie might make us change our tune. At first glance this embellished yellow frock by Emilio Pucci looks a bit like a beach cover-up. The plunging front and loose waist tie would be perfect for lounging on a yacht. But the head piece detail and beaded embellishments take it from casual to couture—a tricky transition in our book. But the more we look at this combo creation the more we realize our issue isn't the dress, it's everything else! The That's My Boy star's massive black boots are an odd color against the yellow and the steel grey statement necklace totally »
No, this isn't a report about Chris Pine being mean to one of his Pa's, in fact the actor has signed on to join Charlie Day, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudekis, and Jamie Foxx for Horrible Bosses 2.

The sequel is set for release November 26th 2014, with That's My Boy's Sean Anders taking over from original director Seth Gordon. via Variety »

He probably won't get to have Christoph Waltz play his father, but that doesn't mean that Chris Pine isn't ready to become a Horrible Boss. Last week we reported that both the Star Trek star and the Austrian Oscar-winner were up for roles in the upcoming comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2, and while it doesn't look like the latter is going to be a part of the project, Variety says that Pine has signed on the dotted line and is now set to play one of the new movie's central antagonists. Set to be directed by Sean Anders (That's My Boy) , the film is actually already in production, but doesn't yet have an official release date.

Thomas McCarthy is directing the comedy, which follows a modern-day cobbler who has the meta-physical ability to enter the lives of the people whose shoes he repairs.
Thomas McCarthy was set to direct the Untitled Boston Globe Project, based on the true story of how the Boston Globe exposed the abuse of young boys in the Catholic Church, but now that project has been pushed into next year. The project, which we first reported on in April, is searching for a new studio home after DreamWorks dropped it, along with the lead actors.
After spending the last few years making terrible comedies like Grown Ups, That's My Boy and Jack & Jill, Adam Sandler is looking to once again try and get back into drama. According to The Wrap, the star is now in negotiations to star in The Cobbler, the new film that is set to be Win Win director Tom McCarthy's next film. White the source doesn't say if McCarthy wrote the script for the film himself - as he has with all three of his previous directorial efforts - it's noted that the story centers on a shoe repair man (played by Sandler) who somehow has the metaphysical ability to experience lives through other people's eyes "for a certain period of time." Presumably this means that the movie will have some sort of science-fiction/fantasy/magical realism element, but it's not confirmed in the report. While The Cobbler sounds like »
This news is anything but horrible.
"We're the Millers" co-writer Sean Anders has signed on to helm the comedy follow-up, with frequent collaborator John Morris on board to produce. The in-demand duo recently did a rewrite of the script, from "Horrible Bosses" screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, and they've also delivered a draft of the upcoming comedy "Mean Moms."
Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day will all return for "Horrible Bosses 2," presumably because their three characters are once again suffering under bad management. While terrible bosses are a dime a dozen, at least the movie itself is in good hands.

Lately, Adam Sandler has been caught up in his usual goofy antics with comedic disasters like Grown Ups 2, That's My Boy and Jack & Jill. However, it sounds like we might get the return of the true actor side of Sandler that we've seen sparsely in films like Punch-Drunk Love, Spanglish, Reign Over Me and Funny People. Deadline has word that Jason Reitman (Juno, Thank You for Smoking and Up in the Air) will direct an adaptation of Chad Kultgen's novel Men, Woman & Children with Sandler, Jennifer Garner and Rosemarie DeWitt currently circling lead roles in the film looking to start production in November. Here's the description of the book from the back cover: Chad Kultgen, cult hero and author of the buzz-generating illicit classics 'The Average American Male' and 'The Lie,' cuts to the quick of the American psyche like no other author writing today. In 'Men, »

For those unaware, Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon is no longer directing the comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2 for Universal. Apparently scheduling conflicts forced him to drop out of the project, and we decided to wait until his replacement stepped up to throw all the news out there. Now THR has word that Sean Anders will direct the film and his writing partner John Morris will produce, fresh off their writing duties on the R-rated comedy We're the Millers. We're a little disappointed in this choice since Anders was behind That's My Boy, however, the duo's work on Sex Drive was more entertaining. Read on! The duo weren't the only ones pursued to replace Gordon though. A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas director Todd Strauss-Schulson was also in contention, but he's likely more focused with forthcoming projects like the comedy Family Getaway, an adaptation of the unique graphic novel Rascal Raccoon, and »

I'm curious, why is We're the Millers enjoying so much success at the theaterc Is it because of Jason Sudeikisc Is it because it's really that funnyc Or could it have anything to do with Jennifer Anistonc I could ask the same thing about the 2011 comedy Horrible Bosses, which also starred Aniston and Sudeikis along with Jason Bateman and Charlie Day. That film went on to make over $209 million worldwide on a $35 million budget... Whyc Maybe you think it's Bateman. Well, how about Identity Thief... Did that do well because of Bateman or Melissa McCarthyc Considering The Heat ultimately made more than Identity Thief I think I'll have to lean more toward McCarthy on this one. What I'm trying to say, is that while Warner Bros. is putting Horrible Bosses 2 together with the director of Sex Drive and That's My Boy, Sean Anders, to replace the original Horrible Bosses (and Identity Thief) director, »

It's official! Billy in 4C (I just thought he was really quiet) is returning in #DumbTo! Played again by the highly underrated Brady Bluhm.
— Farrelly Brothers (@farrellybros) August 31, 2013
As you may recall, Billy was the young, blind neighbor of Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) in the original 1994 classic Dumb and Dumber, whom Lloyd sold his dead bird Petey to. The actor joins Kathleen Turner, who joined the cast of this comedy sequel on Friday.
Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly are directing from a screenplay by Sean Anders and John Morris (Sex Drive, That's My Boy). Production is expected to begin this summer, but an exact shooting date has not been revealed yet.
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels return as Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne from the 1994 comedy Dumb and Dumber, which took in $247 million worldwide from just a $17 million production budget. The project had been in development for years before Warner Bros. dropped the sequel in June. Eight days later, Universal Pictures and Red Granite signed on to co-finance and co-distribute. The story revolves around Lloyd and Harry hitting the road once again, this time to find the love child one of them may have sired, who is in need of a kidney.
Anthony Stokes on five recent movies that deserve a second look....
Although we act as though we are the supreme authority and last word on movies, it's important to remember that critics are humans. The notion of watching a movie objectively without any opinion or agenda creeping in is not true. Even if indifferent to a movie, when we sit down to watch, generally speaking we have an idea what to expect. Moviegoers often walk into a film having already made up their mind about whether they're going to love it or not. Critics are no different. I've seen movies receive praise purely because of the filmmakers behind it. Of course, there's also the flipside where a critic walks into a movie ready to tar and feather. Over the past year, there have been several movies not given the praise they deserve - be it because of their lead, attachment to a franchise, »
