Briefly: A couple weeks ago it was said that the producers of Horrible Bosses 2 wanted Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz to join the film’s returning cast; the idea was for them to play a father/son duo “who terrorize the main characters as their new bosses.” Pine signed on pretty quickly, but Waltz was supposedly unable to commit. Now the scheduling issues, or the script qualms, or whatever problem was keeping he and the film apart have been resolved.
So Variety reports that Waltz and Pine will make life hell for characters played by Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day, as Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Aniston, and Kevin Spacey do entertaining stuff on the periphery.
The film begins shooting in LA, and now has a release date of Nov. 28, 2014. Sean Anders is directing from a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.

Expect more action and violence in the vein of the first, but on a bigger scale. Thanks to Twitch. After the break, you’ll find:
- More talk of a third X-Files film.

You can’t make a movie called Horrible Bosses 2 without a few horrible bosses, so director Sean Anders and studio New Line are looking at a couple of notable names to play the villains.

Update: Variety has confirmed that Pine’s deal is done, so he’s definitely in the movie.

Horrible Bosses did well enough in the summer of 2011 to merit a sequel, but progress on that follow-up has been pretty slow-moving.

And now the project has hit another snag.
Seth Gordon, who directed the first movie and was set to return for the sequel, has just dropped out. His exit leaves New Line scrambling to find a new helmer so that they can shoot this year as planned. Hit the jump to find out why he left.
