Kevin Spacey Is A Horrible Boss
It’s been five years since Mike Markowitz’s screenplay Horrible Bosses appeared on the Black List, and after watching New Line sort through a number of casting candidates, we're finally seeing a complete roster. Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx all signed on back in May and now, according to THR, we’ve got the latest and last edition, Kevin Spacey.
Bateman, Day and Sudiekis will lead as three buddies who hate their jobs. Rather than quit and look for something new, the guys decide it’d be best if they’d just kill each other’s bosses. That’s where Spacey comes in. He’ll join Farrell and Aniston to round out the trio of bad managers as Bateman’s boss, "a master manipulator with an attractive wife," a role for which he reportedly beat out Tom Cruise, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jeff Bridges. Foxx’s character is Motherfucker Jones, a scam artist who gives our three disgruntled employees some guidance.
It certainly looks like Horrible Bosses will be worth the wait. Not only was the script named one of the best unproduced pieces of 2005, but also now it’s got an entirely top-notch cast to bring it to life. The team will assemble under the direction of Seth Gordon when filming begins on July 6th in Los Angeles.
