How's that sensitivity training job going for Willie Stokes? I'd imagine irritating, but we will soon enough find out.

Dimension and Miramax have decided to commission two scripts to fight it out to the death. The best script will be the one to become the BAD SANTA sequel.

Johnny Rosenthal and John Phillips are the writers in question who must come up with the best script. Both screenwriters are newcomers who have yet to get a movie out. Rosenthal wrote a film called IRON JACK that Sony picked up in 2009, but have never gotten off the ground. Phillips recently sold DIRTY GRANDPA to Universal which is about a recently widowed, sexually aggressive grandpa. You might remember an article I wrote about it a couple of months ago.

The only person remaining on board for this sequel is Billy Bob Thorton. Terry Zwigoff isn't back on for the sequel neither are the original writers, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. Rumor has it that the film might be ready for release around the 2012 holiday season.

the first was a riot, an absolute treat, and iīm all for a second film, so, bring it on...
...of course, iīll prefer if the movie has a solid script just like the original had :)

What's funny about Bad Santa is that the movie drastically changes based on what version of the film you see. The theatrical release is fairly mainstream, still funny. The Director's Cut is sadder and more existentialist, and the Unrated is balls out slapstick hilarity (this is the one you see on Comedy Central.)
