‘Horrible Bosses 2′ Hires Christoph Waltz
Though it was recently reported that ‘Django Unchained’ star Christoph Waltz would not be starring in the upcoming sequel, we are pleased to share the news that ‘Horrible Bosses 2‘ has managed to hire Waltz after all. Waltz will be playing a bad guy — of course — alongside Chris Pine, who will play his son in one of the most inspired casting choices in recent memory.
Deadline reports that Christoph Waltz has joined the cast of ‘Horrible Bosses 2′ alongside ‘Star Trek’ star Chris Pine — the pair will play a villainous father and son duo who steal the main protagonists’ idea for an invention and pretend that it’s their own.
‘Horrible Bosses’ director Sean Anders is returning to direct the sequel, which will also star Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, and Jamie Foxx, all reprising their roles from the first film. Waltz, who has appeared in ‘Inglourious Basterds’ and ‘Django Unchained’ for Quentin Tarantino, recently lent his voice talents to the animated film ‘Epic,’ and can be seen next in Terry Gilliam’s whimsical sci-fi flick ‘The Zero Theorem.’
‘Horrible Bosses 2,’ which is produced in part by Brett Ratner (‘Rush Hour’ and the upcoming ‘Hercules‘ with Dwayne Johnson), will hit theaters on November 26, 2014.
