Jennifer Aniston and the rest of the cast of Horrible Bosses 2 have started filming, according to the press release from New Line Cinema.
With the principal cast from the 2011 comedy returning, Jennifer Aniston will reprise her role as man-eating dentist Dr. Julia Harris, D.D.S., tormentor of Charlie Day’s character, Dale Arbus. Fans have to be excited to see Jennifer return as the over-sexed dental pro. It will be interesting to see how Jennifer Aniston’s character will factor into the follow-up, set to be released in 2014. New Line Cinema has already confirmed Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz to appear in the sequel, joining Jason Sudeikis, Kevin Spacey, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jennifer Aniston. New Line has also released the plot synopsis for the film.
Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business. But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company
WorstPreviews reveals that Waltz will play the role of the investor and Pine will play the role of the son. Screen Rant speculates that Aniston’s and Spacey’s characters will be enlisted to help the trio get rid of their new horrible bosses. Slash Film is entertained at the idea of these three lightweights trying to contain Pine’s character and wonders if the filmmakers will give him the same treatment they did to Colin Farrell in the first film.
It’s an interesting and welcome wrinkle for the filmmakers to flip the plot a bit for the sequel. Expect the same comedic tone, however, as original writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein return to pen the screenplay for the follow-up. How will Jennifer Aniston’s nympho-dentist reappear to torment Dale?
