By

A sequel to 2003’s Bad Santa is in the works, and Billy Bob Thornton has officially signed on to reprise his role. According to Variety, Thornton will return for the sequel in his original role as Willie Soke, though a writer or director are not yet attached to the project. Bad Santa 2 has been in the works since at least 2011, when there were two different scripts commissioned that never materialized into a sequel. This latest version is slated to begin production sometime next year.
