Bad Santa 2 Synopsis

BAD SANTA 2 returns Academy Award-winner BILLY BOB THORNTON to the screen as America's favorite anti-hero, Willie Soke. Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie teams up once again with his angry little sidekick, Marcus (TONY COX), to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. Along for the ride is 'the kid' - chubby and cheery Thurman Merman (BRETT KELLY), a 250-pound ray of sunshine who brings out Willie's sliver of humanity.

Mommy issues arise when the pair are joined by Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy-winner KATHY BATES, as Willie's horror story of a mother, Sunny Soke. A super butch super bitch, Sunny raises the bar for the gang's ambitions, while somehow lowering the standards of criminal behavior. Willie is further burdened by lusting after the curvaceous and prim Diane, played by Emmy Award-nominee CHRISTINA HENDRICKS, the charity director with a heart of gold and libido of steel.

You better watch out: BAD SANTA 2 is coming to town.

MARK WATERS directs BAD SANTA 2 from a screenplay by Johnny Rosenthal and Shauna Cross, based on characters by Glenn Ficarra & John Requa. GEYER KOSINSKI and ANDREW GUNN produce. Executive producers are Zanne Devine, David Thwaites, Gabriel Hammond, Daniel Hammond, Mark Waters, Jessica Tuchinsky, Adam Fields, and Doug Ellin. The film is a BROAD GREEN PICTURES and MIRAMAX(r) release. In theatres November 23, 2016.

Bad Santa 2 Could Be Directed By Hot Tub Time Machine's Steve Pink Bad Santa 2 Could Be Directed By Hot Tub Time Machine's Steve Pink

While I did like director Steve Pink's Hot Tub Time Machine, the element that prevented it from being a great comedy was that it just wasn't dark enough. Sure, it had plenty of drugs, sex and violence, but it all felt more like window dressing than part of the bigger story - which I felt was its real intention.

Billy Bob Thornton Says Bad Santa 2 Is Starting Up This Year Billy Bob Thornton Says Bad Santa 2 Is Starting Up This Year

Bad Santa isn't a movie that needs a sequel. It's completely self-contained, has satisfying endings for all of the characters, and operates perfectly as a singular dark comedy. Sure, Willy is a great characters and it could be interesting to see him on another "adventure," but why risk creating something so awful that it would leave a bad taste...
