Pine and Waltz would be joining returnees Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jamie Foxx in the sequel, whose logline is being kept under wraps. John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are writing the script with Sean Anders replacing Seth Gordon as director.
Brett Ratner is producing.
Waltz has turned in excellent roles in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds” and “Django Unchained”, the second of which garnered him an Oscar. He will be seen in Terry Gilliam’s directorial debut “The Zero Theorem.”
Waltz is repped by ICM.
