John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who wrote the 2011 comedy Horrible Bosses, have signed on to draft a sequel, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.

Though plans for the sequel are in the very early stages, it is said that Bateman, Day and Sudeikis are likely to reprise their roles with negotiations beginning to have director Seth Gordon return as well.

And in other news, one of the bigger successes of 2011, Bridesmaids turned its $33 million production budget into over $288 million worldwide. Naturally, Universal Pictures is keen on duplicating that success and today The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that they may do so without the involvement of star Kristen Wiig, who also wrote the screenplay with Annie Mumolo.
"We are talking to filmmakers now about concepts," a Universal rep told the outlet, "and if the right one emerges, we'll move forward."
Universal has somewhat of a history of continuing franchises without key players. Vin Diesel declined to return immediately after 2001's The Fast and the Furious and, hitting theaters this year, The Bourne Legacy places Jeremy Renner at the center of the franchise that previously starred Matt Damon.
Wiig and Mumolo are said to be working on a different project together and are not currently planning a Bridesmaids sequel. Producer Judd Apatow, meanwhile, is said to be tentatively interested, but only if those involved can "come up with an idea that is as good or better than the first one".
Though nothing is confirmed at this time, it is noted that it is unlikely that Apatow would proceed without Wiig and Mumolo's involvement.
So while we almost certain to get another Horrible Bosses the same cannot be said for Bridesmaids.
What do we say?? Lets Mash these two films into one and Create Horrible Bridesmaids!!! These two film were the funniest films for the year, and a sequel that would bring them both together would be HILARIOUS!!! LoL but then again thats just the Comic loving side of us!!!
