Bad Santa took everyone by surprise with it’s unflinching raunch, wit, and willingness to show a dwarf punch a child in the nads and vice versa. So, of course, I’m willing to watch another go ’round. And so is everyone behind the scenes it seems.

The film’s producers, along with Dimension Films and Miramix have hired two writers to draft two different scripts for a sequel. The writers are Johnny Rosenthal, whose million-dollar script Iron Jack has been stuck in development since 2009, and Dirty Grandpa writer John Phillips. The idea is to use one for Bad Santa 2 and maybe the other for a third film. I like to imagine that they are bitter rivals working on their scripts in the same coffee shop. Casting one another icy glares and putting laxatives in one another’s lattes when the opportunity arises. May the best man win!! (LA Times)

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)
