Maybe Paul Feig hasn’t cornered the market on R-rated female-led comedies after all. Sony is moving forward with a sequel to 2011’s Bad Teacher, with Jake Kasdan returning to direct. Star Cameron Diaz is still working out her deal, but it’s expected that she’ll come back as well.
While the first Bad Teacher failed to live up to its comedy potential (IMO, anyway), it did gangbusters at the box office with a $216 million worldwide take. To put that into perspective, that’s more than either Horrible Bosses or 21 Jump Street made ($209 million and $201 million, respectively) but less than Bridesmaids did ($288 million). Get all the details after the jump.
