HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 Director Seth Gordon Leaves the Project

The often delayed sequel to 2011’s comedy hit Horrible Bosses, has hit another snag. Director Seth Gordon, who was set to return to helm the follow up, has reportedly dropped out die to scheduling issues. Rumor is that Gordon is busy with his ABC series The Goldbergs and other commitments, which would have conflicted with the proposed fall production start-date. Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day are all poised to reprise their roles for the follow-up after over a year and a half of negotiations, but movement on the project since they signed on has been quiet. Nevertheless, New Line Cinema is still determined to get filming underway this fall, and the studio has now begun a search for a new director.

Gordon most recently helmed the comedy Identity Thief, which opened to impressive box office earlier this year. The filmmaker is looking to try his hand at the thriller genre with Universal’s One Night on the Hudson, which will also star Day and Sudeikis.
