Bad Santa 2 In The Works With Two Separate Scripts


In a piece of good news for people who love filth and the holiday spirit, the L.A. Times reports that Bad Santa 2 is on the way. Billy Bob Thornton will return as the disgruntled Santa in the sequel to his 2003 black comedy. The twist is that there are currently two scripts commissioned for the sequel: one from writer Johnny Rosenthal, who’s Iron Jack was bought by Sony in 2009, and the other from John Phillips, who recently sold his film Dirty Grandpa, which features a “recently widowed, sexually aggressive grandfather.” Why Phillips doesn’t just go ahead and replace all the “grandpas” with “vomit-soaked Kris Kringles” is beyond me.
