Christoph Waltz confirmed for Horrible Bosses 2

Horrible Bosses 2 has added some Oscar-winning talent to its ensemble cast, with Christoph Waltz finally signing on to join the production.

Waltz had long been linked to a role in the sequel, only for reports to emerge in recent weeks that scheduling difficulties has forced him out of the running.

Happily, Deadline is now reporting that Waltz has sorted out his calendar and will be appearing as fellow new addition Chris Pine's father.

Waltz and Pine will play a double-act who steal an idea for an invention from returning cast members Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis.

Directed by Sean Anders and co-starring Jamie Foxx, Horrible Bosses 2 will open in the US on 26 November 2014, with a UK date yet to be confirmed.
