While I can’t consider myself a fan, they’re many people out there who enjoyed 2011’s Horrible Bosses and made the film a hit. Comedy is subjective, so I can’t really complain. Those said fans are sure to be excited to know that a sequel is set to be released in the near future.
However, they’ll now be disappointed to know that the director of the previous film, Seth Gordon, will not be returning for the follow-up.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Gordon has had to drop out of the film due to his commitments to the ABC series The Goldbergs and other projects where he is attached. These obligations prevent him from being able to commit to the film’s proposed fall production start date. Among the projects that Gordon is trying to make is One Night on the Hudson, a thriller, with Universal, which is set to star Horrible Bosses‘ actors Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis.
Actors Jason Bateman, Day and Sudeikis are all set to reprise their roles from the first movie. New Line Cinema is now looking for a new director for the project.
Gordon’s work was last seen earlier this year in the dreadful comedy Identity Thief.
