Bad Santa 2 has found its new foul-mouthed momma Sunny Soke: Kathy Bates. In addition, it was announced that Tony Cox and Brett Kelly would reprise their roles as Marcus and Thurman “The Kid” Meman.
Bates is certainly not shy when it comes to playing motherly roles. Right now, she is playing the role of another dysfunctional mother in the acclaimed American Horror Story: Hotel and once played the overprotective mother of Adam Sandler in The Waterboy.
The Oscar, Golden Globe, and Emmy winner will be teaming up with Billy Bob Thorton, who will be returning to his role as Willie from the original 2003 film.
Mark Waters will direct with screenplay written by Johnny Rosenthal, Doug Ellin, and Shauna Cross. The sequel plot has been kept under wraps but, will possibly pick up from the original ending.
Production is set to begin in January 2016 in Canada, with an unknown theatrical release date.
