• Chris Pine (Star Trek Into Darkness) may sign on to play one of the new Horrible Bosses in the Sean Anders-directed sequel to the 2011 box-office hit.

New Line reportedly wanted Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz to play the part of the father, but it’s unlikely that he’ll join the project. [Deadline]
