Gross Pointe Blank and High Fidelity Writer Steve Pink will Direct Bad Santa 2

Steve PinkBad Santa 2 is getting some new blood. Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink has signed on to direct the Bad Santa follow up.


Pink will also re-werite the screenplay for the film. Writing is nothing new to Pink of course, he wrote Gross Pointe Blank and High Fidelity. Two fantastically written films. Since, Hot Tub Time Machine, he’s been directing episodes of “New Girl,” “The Office,” and “Happy Endings,”


Though we don’t have tons of details about this film because Steve Pink is re-writing it, we do know that Billy Bob Thornton will reprise his role as the boozing conman who dresses up like Santa Claus. We also know that the film is set for a 2013 release.


The one question everyone wants to know is, does this mean John Cusack could be coming aboard? If anyone could talk him into it professionally, you’d think it would be Pink who has built his career around Cusack and his mastery of light laid back comedy. I’ll keep you posted.
