Billy Bob Thornton: Bad Santa 2 still on the cards
Bad Santa 2 shows no sign of happening just yet - so what's happened? Billy Bob Thornton brings the story up to date...
It's been a year or two now since it was first announced that a sequel to Bad Santa was happening. And since then, bluntly, there's been no sign that it actually is. So what happened, and is it still a project that's going to press ahead at any point?
Collider has posted a new interview with Billy Bob Thornton, the Bad Santa himself, and he confirmed that "we all want it to happen", adding that "it's all logisitics. That's this business crap, with the rights here, and a person who thinks this, and this person wanting that kind of script .... they're still working on it".
Thornton conceded that "I think our mistake, and certainly my mistake, was that when people heard about it on the internet or in interviews, they would as me 'are you doing Bad Santa?' and I would say 'oh yeah, we're gonna do it this fall' ... when people tell me stuff, I still believe it".
So then: is Bad Santa 2 any closer to happening? Possibly. Thornton said that it's still being worked on, and that it could be as soon as end the coming year. Or never. As simple as that.
