Jason Bateman, Charlie Day (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) and Jennifer Aniston are in talks to join the previously-announced Colin Farrell in New Line/Warner Bros.’ Horrible Bosses.
The Seth Gordon-directed comedy centers on three best friends who, frustrated by their jobs, come to the conclusion the only solution is to kill one another’s bosses.
Bateman and Day would play two of the frustrated employees. The Hollywood Reporter says the studio “is in the process of attracting A-list names for the roles of the bosses, including a master manipulator, a sexually aggressive dentist and a weaselly scion.”
Aniston and Farrell would play two of the movies’ three chiefs.
Michael Markowitz wrote the initial script, with Jonathan Goldstein and Francis John Daley having penned the most recent draft. Brett Ratner and Jay Stern are producing.
