Columbia is gearing up to bring you another Bad Teacher from director Jake Kasdan

06.20.2013

Get ready for some more sexy car wash action, as Sony/Columbia Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to BAD TEACHER, the raunchy hit comedy that starred Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, and Jason Segel. Director Jake Kasdan directed the first film and is signed on to develop and helm the sequel. Although none of the original cast have yet to ink deals for the follow-up, it's likely that at least Diaz will return in the titular role.

Kasdan is currently in pre-production on SEX TAPE, which coincidentally stars both Diaz and Segel, and looks to get back into the BAD TEACHER business once that wraps. I thought BAD TEACHER was fun enough, mostly for that car wash scene, of course, but never got the feeling that the journey should continue. However, I'm a sucker for raunchy R-rated comedies, so if they can make it work for another go-round, then I'm game.

Hannah Minghella, president of Production at Columbia commented on the announcement, saying:

“Bad Teacher was a hit not just in North America, but throughout the world. We’re excited that Jake will be returning to develop and helm the sequel.  We love Justin’s take on the material – it hits all the notes that made the first film such a breakthrough hit and also takes the characters in a new direction that is fresh and fun.”

What do you think? Do we need more BAD TEACHER?

Extra Tidbit: I'm looking forward to seeing Diaz in a serious villain role later this year with Ridley Scott's The Counselor. I think she will do well.

Can we replace Cameron Diaz. The first one was average at best.

Whatever happened with the sequel to Bad Santa?

in today's unnecessary sequel segment

the first one was pretty good - funny, raunchy, good cast, car wash scene was great. In no way does it need a sequel.

The first was not that good. Why do we need a sequel? Being that the first made money they will not fix any of the firsts problems and just cash in on it.

Segel. Segel. Not Segal, Segel.

He's not Steven's younger brother.
See-guhl. Not Suh-gahl.

If the author switches the "e" in Kasden with the "a" in Segal, he would have both names correct.

How does that bode for the TV series that CBS is set to air this fall? Seems to be the same plot line as the movie.

I checked the numbers because I was going to gripe that this was getting a sequel and something like Pineapple Express wasn't, but it turns out this thing made $100 million in the states and more than double that overseas on a $20M budget, so sadly it was a no brainer for Columbia.
