Normally Hollywood likes to get sequels up and going as soon as possible, but it’s taken MGM a while to decide they want another trip into the world of Hot Tub Time Machine. However THR reports that the studio is now making deals to try and make a follow-up a reality.
At the moment John Cusack isn’t involved (although that could change), but Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke have all been in talks with the studio. Indeed Corddry may also take on scripting duties, alongside Steve Pink, the director of the last film (who is also in talks to return).
At the moment no deals have been signed, and THR suggests things could fall apart as it’s fairly early in the process, although if it all comes together MGM is likely to put the movie on the fast-track. There’s no news on the plot for the sequel and whether it would see the guys going back to the 80s again, or if this one would be set in a different era.
