STX announces Bad Moms’ Moms
No, April Fool’s Day was yesterday. STX Films announced today at CinemaCon that the Bad Moms franchise is getting another entry with Bad Moms’ Moms, focusing on the mothers of the original Bad Moms. Cheryl Hines, Christine Baranski and Susan Sarandon are set to reprise their roles from A Bad Moms Christmas, having previously appeared as the moms of characters played by Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn. It remains to be seen if Kunis, Bell, and Hahn will appear.
STX Films chief Adam Fogelson called the upcoming sequel, “A whole new adventure that is attracting all sorts of great talent.”
It’s unclear what the plot of the film will be, but count on raunchy hijinks from the titular matriarchs. It remains to be seen if original writers/directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore will return for the sequel as well, though they previously wrote and directed the other two movies in the series.
The first Bad Moms movie arrive in the summer of 2016, bringing in $183 million worldwide and becoming STX’s highest grossing film ever at the domestic box office. Its sequel, A Bad Moms Christmas, arrived in November of 2017 with slightly lower returns but still bringing in $130 million worldwide.
