Even though a director has yet to be confirmed it seems progress is being made on Bad Santa 2.
During a recent interview actor Billy Bob Thornton and star of the original movie explained that the script is nearing completion:
It’s been very hard trying to get the script right. We’ve been through three or four drafts but we’re getting real close. Then there’s the business dealings to sort out, all the stuff I don’t understand. But one way or another, the sequel will happen and the idea is to shoot it next year. We know we’ll never beat the first film but we’ll get as close as we can.
