• After a reported six months of negotiations, Jason Sudekis, Jason Bateman, and Charlie Day are set to reprise their roles as Kurt, Nick, and Dale for Horrible Bosses 2. The first film grossed over $200 million worldwide on a $35 million budget, so it’s no surprise that New Line was eager to try out a sequel. Business aside, this seems like great news. Not only is the cast remaining intact, we’re getting the same writing (John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein) and directing (Seth Gordon) team, and Jamie Foxx is still in talks to reprise his role as  Motherf—– Jones too. Filming is scheduled to begin this summer. [THR]

• Adam Driver (Girls) is in talks to join the ensemble cast of Shawn Levy’s film adaptation of This Is Where I Leave You, about a group of siblings in the wake of their father’s death. If his Girls schedule allows, Driver would play Bateman’s character’s rebellious brother. Jonathan Tropper wrote the book and the screenplay. [THR]

• James Gandolfini might head back to the mob in Michael Roskam’s Animal Rescue, starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace (Prometheus), and Matthais Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone). Based on the Dennis Lehane story (the author responsible for Mystic River and Shutter Island) the film will follow a Boston bartender who rescues the wrong puppy and ends up a mob target. [Variety]

 Does Godzilla want to be the next Dark Knight? By the looks of who is in talks to join the cast, it seems like it. We’ve already talked about Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bryan Cranston circling the reboot, and Monday it was announced that David Strathairn (Lincoln) might join the film as well. He’d play a military man. [Variety]
