The future of "Horrible Bosses" is about to be written.
John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, who co-wrote the script for the 2011 raunchy comedy, are onboard for a sequel, The Wrap has confirmed.
Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis -- who starred in the first film -- are also expected to return, although a New Line representative said the only deal currently in place pertains to Daley and Goldstein.
Director Seth Gordon said last summer that there were talks of a sequel, following the first film's unexpected success. The movie -- the cast of which also included Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey and Colin Farrell -- grossed $209.6 million worldwide off a production budget of roughly $35 million.
Daley and Goldstein are represented by UTA. Other projects include the New Line comedy "Burt Wonderstone" and the animated Columbia film "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2." Both are due in 2013.
