May 31st, 2013 by Marc Comments


Doug Ellin of Entourage fame has signed on to rewrite and possibly direct Bad Santa 2, according to Deadline.

The original 2003 dark comedy starred Billy Bob Thornton in the title role, alongside the late Bernie Mac and John Ritter.

Thornton would like to start on the sequel this coming Autumn, after he wraps production on London Fields.

While will rewrite the Johnny Rosenthal script for Bad Santa 2, it has not been 100% confirmed if he will direct.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
