When HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 was first announced, many thought the sequel might follow the same formula as the first film, and end up being like THE HANGOVER, PART II. Meaning more of the same, and not as funny. Well, we now know the new film won't just be a copy of the first.

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 has officially started production, and New Line Cinema has released a new synopsis for the film. Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx are returning for the sequel, and Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine recently joined the film as a douchey boss father-son duo. Here's the official press release:

Filming has begun in Los Angeles on New Line Cinema’s “Horrible Bosses 2,” directed by Sean Anders (“Sex Drive”). The follow-up to the 2011 hit comedy “Horrible Bosses” reunites stars Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as everyone’s favorite working stiffs Nick, Dale and Kurt. Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx and Kevin Spacey also reprise their starring roles, while Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz star as new adversaries standing between the guys and their dreams of success.

Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business in “Horrible Bosses 2.” But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.

Sean Anders directs from a screenplay by Anders & John Morris (“We’re the Millers”), and by John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2”), who also served as writers on the first film. “Horrible Bosses 2” is being produced by Brett Ratner, Jay Stern, John Morris, John Rickard and Chris Bender, with Diana Pokorny and John Cheng serving as executive producers.

I didn't think the first film was that great, but I'm very glad they aren't going with the exact same plot for the sequel. I still think it would have been funnier if the three became horrible bosses themselves in the new film, but HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 could be pretty hilarious, especially with Christoph Waltz as one of the bosses from hell.

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 will be released on November 28th, 2014.

Well at least it's not a copy and paste sequel.

The Hangover trilogy still haunts me to this day.

Sounds good to me. First one is an underrated gem in my opinion. Think I'll watch it today.

Christoph Waltz welcomed me at the door!

And the writers for We're The Millers locked me in. I am so pumped for this sequel.

Love it! The first movie was hilarious. And I'm so glad to hear they've come up with a somewhat more original storyline for the sequel rather than trying to rehatch the exact same plot (ahem, Hangover, ahem).
The plot itself sounds good too, given the first movie it has a lot of potential. It seems like given the events of the first movie these guys have basically decided to use the most illegal method of getting revenge on bosses and business partners.

Sounds like an entertaining premise shoehorned into a Horrible Bosses sequel. I mean that in a good way. Wonder if Kevin Spacey is receiving visitors, or maybe he's out on a technicality (fingers crossed that somehow he and Waltz get to share the screen at some point).

I like how they're going darker for the sequel. And please have a scene that spoofs Silence of the Lambs where the three guys have to go to Kevin Spacey for advice and Spacey is in a cell, just like the one Hopkins was in.
