Horrible Bosses

Sequel News of the Day: Last summer Horrible Bosses grossed more than $200 million worldwide, so a sequel for the modestly-budgeted dark comedy was inevitable. The original writers are now on board for Horrible Bosses 2, and stars Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day are expected to return; the studio is “in early talks” with director Seth Gordon. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Frozen Stars: Academy Award-winning documentarian Errol Morris will be directing a live-action feature entitled Freezing People is Easy, set in the 1960s and based on a true story. He could have a dream cast: Paul Rudd is attached to star, while Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, and Christopher Walken are said to be “circling” the project. (Deadline)

Brotherly Art Thieves: Heist comedy The Black Marks, starring Kurt Russell and Matt Dillon as brothers trying to pull off one last art theft, has been acquired for distribution by Dimension Films. Production begins this month, with Jay Baruchel also in the cast and writer Jonathan Sobol set to direct; a tentative release date has not yet been announced. (The Playlist)

The Naked Man and the Chipmunks: During a recent screening of Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked in Chicago, a naked man allegedly exposed himself to the audience, which, as you might expect, included a number of children. When police arrived, they found the man, still naked, sitting in the front row; the movie was stopped and patrons were issued refunds. (We are resisting the temptation to make an inappropriate joke about chipmunks and nuts, but you go ahead.) (Chicago Tribune)
