Whether or not any of us were asking for a sequel to 2011’s comedy hit Horrible Bosses, Warner Bros. will be bringing us one anyway later this year with Horrible Bosses 2. This time around, Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day) and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) have grown sick and tired of answering to evil higher-ups. So, they decide to start their own company, but that arrangement goes sour when they’re conned out of it by a slick investor (Christoph Waltz). Searching for a way back in, the trio hatch a hare-brained plot to kidnap the investor’s adult son (Chris Pine), only to find themselves in way over their heads.
The first trailer for the film promised some hilarious interplay between the three leads, but it didn’t really focus on the villains of the sequel. Now, two new images (one above, one below) have arrived online, highlighting Waltz and Pine’s characters. Neither image really provides much of a spoiler for the film, but I’m really looking forward to watching these two talented actors lock horns with Bateman, Day and Sudeikis.
And if the addition of Waltz and Pine wasn’t exciting enough, Horrible Bosses 2 will also feature returning stars Kevin Spacey as sadistic former boss David Harkin, Jennifer Aniston as the sexually agressive dentist Julia Harris and Jamie Foxx as the badass Dean “Motherfucker” Jones. When you also add in that the film boasts a script by John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein and John Morris, two of whom penned the original, fans have every right to expect a hilarious, satisfying sequel.
The film opens in theaters November 26th. Check out the plot summary below and let us know if you’re excited for this one.
