MGM wants to take a dip in the Hot Tub Time Machine again; negotiations underway

Jan. 16, 2013by:

I had a blast with director Steve Pink's HOT TUB TIME MACHINE. The comedic talents of John Cusack, Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clark Duke coupled with guest stars like Crispin Glover, Chevy Chase, and Johnny from THE KARATE KID, as well as an absolutely wonderful topless scene with Mad Men's Jessica Pare. I'm struggling to find something wrong with the movie, but I just can't. It's a raunchy blast of '80's nostalgia and I'd absolutely jump back in the bubbling waters.

As is the case for MGM, who are in negotiations with director Steve Pink, Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clark Duke to go "back in time" for a sequel to the film. Although everything seems to be on shaky ground, sources say that "if a deal makes, production would be fast-tracked." The only downfall? Cusack is missing from the equation...so far. Thus far, he's the only one not involved, but that could always change.

I think there's a lot of potential for a sequel to HOT TUB TIME MACHINE. I'd love to see them take it to the '90's, but even if they stuck with the '80's that would work out just fine. There's plenty of cliches, trends, and downright goofy shit to play off in that decade.

More as this develops.

This movie was pretty fun! I'd be down for another, but without Cusack it would definitely be missing something. I hope this gets made and he signs up! Bring back Chevy too, and make him a full actor in the movie! Love to see him ham it up with the rest of the guys!!

"We said we weren't gonna talk about Cincinnati ever..."

I think we need to find out what happened in Cincinnati as well as what is in the shoebox labeled "Cincinnati." And we would need John Cusack to return for that storyline. In any case, I love HTTM and really hope Cusack comes back. This is great news!

more 80's

I've watched it 12 times now, funny as hell. There is a lot more they can do in the 80's. But they could still run without John and bring someone else in the mix if need be.

More 80s! they were too young in the 70s and 90s too old

Loved the first one, it was a blast and so much fun to see the 80s as colorful and exaggerated as people remember. The thing is they were too young in the 70s for it to be cool, and the 90s would be boring seeing them get jobs and be adults... It needs to be 80s, because that is the only setting the hot tub time machine has.

as much as I like Cusack, ...

...he definitely seemed like the odd man out in the first film. He didn't really seem into it very much. His character was the 'straight man,' but I just haven't been impressed by any of his recent performances. I'd still prefer he came back though, just to keep the Tub Pack together.

Although I love Cusack most of the time, I have to agree. It really felt like it was Corddry and Robinson's show and that was just fine. Perhaps a cameo would be best suited for the sequel, but I kind of doubt Cusack would waste his time with that. We'll see.

I LOVE Hot Tub Time Machine. The movie is hilarious and is one of my favorite comedies ever! It's also very underrated as well.

I'm intrigued by a sequel, but for this to be TRULY awesome, Cusack needs to be back as well. If not then I say don't even bother.
