We knew that John Cusack was out of the lead role in Hot Tub Time Machine 2, but there’d been no word on whether Chevy Chase would be back for more. Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry and Clark Duke are all set to return, with Adam Scott signing on to replace Cusack in the lead, although he will play a completely new character.
Now it’s been revealed that Chevy Chase is set to reprise his role from Hot Tub Time Machine in the upcoming sequel, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, according to Deadline.
Chevy Chase is returning as the unnamed hot tub repairman, who is always quick to dole out advice. It isn’t known if he will have a larger role this time around.
There is a possibility Cusack will have a cameo, as he recently wrote on his Twitter, “Well see –if they ask -and ask nice -RT @JohnnyMerch Please at least do a Chevy-esque cameo in HTTM2!!!#GreatWhiteBuffalo”
Steve Pink is directing from a screenplay by Josh Heald. Shooting should kick off later this year.
