TheWrap reports that Billy Bob Thornton is in negotiations to reprise his role of Willie in The Weinstein Company's Bad Santa 2.

"We feel that it's a Christmas perennial for the R-rated crowd,", a Weinstein Company spokesperson told the site. "Everyone loves the character and Billy Bob's excited to be in talks with us."

The Terry Zwigoff-directed original was released in 2003 and co-starred the late Bernie Mac and John Ritter, as well as Lauren Tom and Lauren Graham.

The dark comedy was made for about $23 million and earned $76.5 million at the worldwide box office.

Bad Santa 2 was one of numerous films announced by the Weinstein Company in December that could get sequels.
