[Movies] We're The Millers Writers To Direct Horrible Bosses 2 Posted by Joseph Lee on 09.03.2013
The project moves forward...
Sean Anders and John Morris, the writers of New Line's We're The Millers, are set for Horrible Bosses 2, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Anders will direct while Morris will be an executive producer. New Line had to find a new director when Seth Gordon, director of the 2011 film, left in early August due to a scheduling conflict. Todd Strauss-Schulson was on the short list.
Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day and Jamie Foxx will reprise their roles from the first film. John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who worked on the first film, also wrote the original draft of the sequel. Anders and Morris provided a rewrite. They've also written a draft for New Line's Mean Moms, based on the book Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads. Brett Ratner and Jay Stern will produce. John Cheng, John Rickard and Diana Pokorny are executive producing.
Anders previously directed Sex Drive and That's My Boy. As a team, Anders and Morris have written She's Out Of My League and Hot Tub Time Machine. They also worked on Dumb and Dumber To.
We're The Millers has earned over $113 million so far, and only cost around $37 million to produce.
