Christoph Waltz is set to star in Horrible Bosses 2.
The Oscar-winning actor is close to finalizing a deal to play Chris Pine's father in the comedy sequel. The father-son duo will be a new set of mean employers in the movie.
The Inglourious Basterds star was initially approached for the part but declined as he thought the offer was too low, however a deal has been sorted out.
Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Jamie Fox and Charlie Day are all reprising their roles in the film. Also returning are Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Sean Anders (That's My Boy) is directing the project which is scheduled to be released in November 2014.
