Last year Billy Bob Thornton said he was waiting for the BAD SANTA 2 script, and the latest word on the sequel is that the script still isn't done, but filming may start this fall. Director Doug Ellin (ENTOURAGE, KISSING A FOOL) joined the development hell project back in 2013, and while speaking with Collider, said if they can get the script right, he's supposed to begin production in September or October.

Thornton is still attached to reprise his Willie role, and Doug Ellin says he's hopeful that the sequel's tone will be similar to the first film. After the interviewer said he wants BAD SANTA 2 to be filthy, Ellin said, "I do too, and Billy Bob wants to also."

Although I'm still not sure if a sequel will actually happen, I definitely want another BAD SANTA movie. What do you think the plot should be for BAD SANTA 2?

Doug Ellin's ENTOURAGE movie opens on June 3, 2015, and if the director is able to start shooting BAD SANTA 2 in the autumn, it will probably be in theaters Christmas 2016.
