Moviegoers were pleasantly surprised back in 2011 when Horrible Bosses came out and ended up being one of the best films of the year. The gang of Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day are back for round two as New Line Cinema has announced the official release date for Horrible Bosses 2.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the gang will be returning on November 26, 2014.
Horrible Bosses 2, the sequel to the hit New Line comedy, has been slated for a release around Thanksgiving in 2014. The movie, which will reunite Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as put-upon employees, will open Wednesday, Nov. 26, 2014. That puts the movie, being directed by Sean Anders, right before the Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 27.
The success of the first Horrible Bosses is what paved the way for a sequel to be possible. It also marked a triumph for Sudeikis and Day in particular who successfully transferred from hit TV shows to a hit movie in the matter of a summer. It also served as a bright spot for Bateman in a summer that included the forgettable The Change-Up.
Comedy sequels don’t have a very solid history of success, but with the right people in charge of Horrible Bosses 2, it might end up breaking that streak and once again surprising moviegoers.
