Columbia is gearing up to bring you another Bad Teacher from director Jake Kasdan
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. Were excited that Jake will be returning to develop and helm the sequel. We love Justins 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?
