Jason Bateman fans: today is all yours. We just saw a new theatrical trailer for The Change-Up, his body-switching comedy with Ryan Reynolds, and now here’s the first trailer for Horrible Bosses. This is a comedy where three friends (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day) scheme, in seemingly moronic ways, to knock off their three bosses, played by Colin Farrell, Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston. We’ve had high hopes for this one, and the trailer has a few good laughs. (Many from Colin Farrell.) Check it out after the break. Read More »

First Looks: Chloe Moretz in ‘Hick;’ Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston & Kevin Spacey in ‘Horrible Bosses’
Posted on Tuesday, April 5th, 2011 by Russ Fischer
Just a couple years ago Chloe Moretz looked like a munchkin in (500) Days of Summer, and now in this off-set still from Hick, she’s looking a bit older than fourteen as she’s tarted up for her role as “a 13-year-old Nebraska girl who gets more than she bargained for when she runs away to Las Vegas.”
The full photo is after the break, along with a collection of images from Horrible Bosses, in which Seth Gordon (The King of Kong) directs Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell and Jennifer Aniston as three people you really don’t want to work for. Read More »
Hey, discarding handsome aesthetics in favor of comedy worked for Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder, right? So here’s Colin Farrell sporting a Kingpin-style combover, either to star in a secret film where he and Peter Dinklage play twin brothers, or for his role as one of the title characters in the comedy Horrible Bosses, which is shooting now. See a larger pic, if you can take it, after the break. Read More »
We’ve been following the developing cast of Horrible Bosses fairly closely. The film, in which three friends make plans to bump off each others’ three awful bosses, could be a great little comedy if things work well. The last big role to cast has been the third of the title’s horrible bosses, and now an appropriate name has agreed to sign on the dotted line: Kevin Spacey. Read More »
Casting Notes: Jason Sudeikis in Horrible Bosses; Cary Elwes in Ivan Reitman Comedy; John Cusack in Jack
Posted on Thursday, May 27th, 2010 by Russ Fischer
Based on the cast alone, Horrible Bosses is starting to look like one of the more promising studio comedies on the horizon. The film about three friends who conspire to kill each others’ bosses already has Charlie Day and Jason Bateman as two of the three friends, and Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell as two of the bosses. Jamie Foxx, meanwhile, plays “a scam artist who dishes killing advice to the three regular guys.”
Now Jason Sudeikis is joining; he’ll play the third friend, leaving just the final boss to cast. King of Kong‘s Seth Gordon is directing. [THR]
After the break, Cary Elwes works with Ivan Reitman and John Cusack kills people. Read More »

Casting Notes: Tim Robbins and James Gandolfini in Cinema Verite; Toni Collette in Mental; Jamie Foxx and More in Horrible Bosses
Posted on Wednesday, May 12th, 2010 by Russ Fischer
What is it with HBO and dramatic recreations of classic documentaries? Last year there was Grey Gardens, and now the network is lining up Cinema Verite, which will be a dramatized behind the scenes take on the 1973 PBS doc An American Family. The original series was a big deal; it frankly portrayed family troubles for the first time on television, and one of the family sons was the first openly gay character/personality on American television.
Cinema Verite is written by David Seltzer, with Tim Robbins and Diane Lane set to play parents Bill and Pat Loud; James Gandolfini will play An American Family producer Craig Gilbert. Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (American Splendor) are directing, which automatically makes the endeavor a bit more interesting. [THR]
After the break, Toni Collette will work again with her Muriel’s Wedding director, and Horrible Bosses gets some good talent. Read More »
