'Horrible Bosses 2' Loses Director Seth

New Line seeking new director

Seth Gordon has stepped away from directing “Horrible Bosses 2,” which is still set to star Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day.

New Line is seeking a new director and still planning on a fall start.

Gordon has indicated to the studio that the press of other projects precluded returning to the “Bosses” sequel. He’s been working on ABC’s comedy “The Goldbergs” and has been attached to MGM’s remake of “Wargames.”

Gordon directed 2011’s “Horrible Bosses,” which also starred Jennifer Aniston and Jamie Foxx. The original grossed $209 million worldwide.
