'Horrible Bosses 2' expected to move forward with Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis
Director Seth Gordon also in talks to return
Though "Bridesmaids 2" doesn't appear to be moving forward with the sort of decisive speed that Universal was likely hoping for, the prospects for another follow-up to a smash-hit summer comedy - New Line's "Horrible Bosses" - appear to be sunny at the moment, as The Hollywood Reporter claims the studio has signed a deal with original writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to pen a sequel.
In addition, the first film's trio of put-upon protagonists - Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis - are expected to return for more "stick-it-to-the-man"-style shenanigans along with original director Seth Gordon, though none of the aforementioned have officially signed on.
Panic over a Kristen Wiig-free 'Bridesmaids' sequel seems premature

Are you looking forward to a sequel to "Horrible Bosses", or would you rather the first movie remained a one-off affair? Let your opinions fly in the comments!
