About the Production
Following the release of Horrible Bosses in July 2011, director Seth Gordon confirmed that talks were underway for a sequel due to the financial success of the film in the United States, saying: “Yeah, we’ve definitely discussed it. It’s done well in the States, the film has, so that’s becoming a more concerted effort now, we’re trying to figure out what the sequel could be.” On January 4, 2012, it was confirmed that a sequel was moving forward, and that screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein would be returning to write the script.
At this time, New Line Cinema was reported to be negotiating with Gordon to return as director as well as with Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis to return in the lead roles. On February 27, 2012, it was confirmed that Goldstein and Daley were in the process of writing the new script. In March 2013, Goldstein and Daley confirmed that they had submitted multiple draft scripts for the sequel, and that production had moved towards finalizing the budget. Later in the same month Bateman, Day, and Sudeikis were confirmed to be reprising their roles, with Jamie Foxx negotiating to return. The film will again be produced by Brett Ratner and Jay Stern.
In August 2013, it was announced that Gordon would not be returning to direct because of scheduling conflicts and that the studio was actively searching for a replacement. In September 2013, Sean Anders was announced as Gordon’s replacement, with John Morris joining the production as a producer. The pair had previously performed a rewrite on Goldstein’s and Daley’s sequel script. In September 2013, Jennifer Aniston signed on to reprise her role as Julia Harris.
