Miramax and Broad Green Pictures have announced that principal photography has begun in Montréal, Québec, Canada, on Bad Santa 2.
We already know Billy Bob Thorton is back in the title role as Willy and we know too that Tony Cox as Marcus and Brett Kelly as the amazingly named Sherman Merman are both back.
Now we know that Ryan Hansen (2 Broke Girls), Jenny Zigrino (50 Shades of Black), and Jeff Skowron (The Good Shepherd) are onboard too: “Hansen will play Regent Hastings, who runs a charitable organization with his wife Diane (Christina Hendricks). Zigrino and Skowron play security guards Gina and Dorfman, respectively.”
Interestingly. Kathy Bates (Misery) will play Willy’s tough-as-nails mom Sunny Soke.
The film will be directed by Mark Waters (Freaky Friday, Mean Girls) and is set for release on November 23rd, 2016.
