Actor Billy Bob Thornton's Christmas classic Bad Santa has warmed the hearts of yuletide movie-watchers for years. And millions of children across the world have looked up at their parents and asked, "what happened to Billy Bob Thornton's character after the end of Bad Santa?" Well, now you can finally stop lying to your children, because Billy Bob Thornton has been interested in doing a sequel for a while, and now is actually in negotiations to do it. Here's a Weinstein Company spokesman, who I like to imagine is wearing a Santa hat:
"We feel that it’s a Christmas perennial for the R rated crowd. Everyone loves the character and Billy Bob’s excited to be in talks with us."
It was actually Thornton who initially let slip about this at South by Southwest, so it looks like this might actually be happening. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night! (via The Wrap)
