Sean Anders has replaced Seth Gordon as the director of Horrible Bosses 2.

The We're the Millers writer takes over from Gordon who directed the first instalment of the comedy which starred Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell.

The Wrap reports that a scheduling conflict meant that Gordon had to depart the sequel.

Saturday Night Live star Jason Sudeikis, Arrested Development's Jason Bateman and Charlie Day will all reprise their roles in the comedy.

The plot and release date for Horrible Bosses 2 has not yet been revealed.

Anders previously directed the Adam Sandler comedy That's My Boy and Sex Drive.
