The Boss Baby 2 lands Jeff Goldblum, Ariana Greenblatt & Eva Longoria
As the studio preps to get one sequel in theaters later this year, DreamWorks Animation’s The Boss Baby, now subtitled Family Business, has begun building the rest of its cast with the additions of Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic World: Dominion), Ariana Greenblatt (Stuck in the Middle) and Eva Longoria (Dora and the Lost City of Gold), according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In addition to the trio, the cast has also expanded to include James Marsden (Sonic the Hedgehog) and Amy Sedaris (BoJack Horseman), all of whom join returning stars Alec Baldwin (The Looming Tower) in the titular role and Jimmy Kimmel (Teen Titans Go! to the Movies) and Lisa Kudrow (Neighbors 2) as the parents.
“The everyday joy for me is not only watching our actors make a line hilarious or heartfelt through subtle adjustments, but the process they all share of improvisation and character creation,” director Tom McGrath said in a statement. “They are the heart and soul of the characters they bring to life.”
The official logline for the film reads as follows:
The first Boss Baby, released on March 31, 2017, earned $468.4 million worldwide, with $167 million coming from North America and $301.4 million from international markets. It also spawned a spinoff series on Netflix titled The Boss Baby: Back in Business.
The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly-imaginative 7-year old named Tim. With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.
The voice cast also includes Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow and Miles Bakshi. The animated film is directed by Tom McGrath and written by Michael McCullers. The Boss Baby is produced by Ramsey Ann Naito.
Boss Baby 2 is slated to hit theaters on March 26, 2021.
