The studio behind the summer movie Bad Moms will release a follow-up companion film titled Bad Dads. So many jokes.
Bad Dads—or as I’ll be calling it, Bad Zads—is scheduled for a July 14, 2017 release. Bad Moms starred Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn and has grossed over $112 million at the box office, with a $20 million production budget.
The guys who wrote and directed Bad Moms were also behind The Hangover. A sequel was inevitable, given that Hollywood is lazy. But Bad Moms’ STX Entertainment wants to do things differently. A statement, via Deadline:
“Where other studios have automatically green lit traditional and significantly more expensive sequels, STX has determined those sequels on average are grossing 68% less than the originals. Instead, STX has chosen to focus on extending consumer passion for the Bad Moms brand with a series of film spin-offs, a reality television show, short form digital content, and a robust consumer products program.”
Which trio of dudes should be cast in Bad Zads? Tom Hardy, Jaden Smith and Oscar Isaac. Benedict Cumberbatch, Brad Pitt and Jacob Tremblay. Ryan Gosling, Morgan Freeman and Dwight from The Office.
But which trio of dudes will be cast? My bet is on Jason Sudeikis, a non-white guy and another white guy. But since you’re not busy right now, let’s make a poll out of this.
