MGM is looking for another dip in the Hot Tub Time Machine.
The original time travel comedy was a big success for MGM and now the studio is reportedly in conversations for more. According to the Hollywood Reporter, MGM is negotiating with three of the original four stars of the film to return for the sequel. Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke are in “exploratory talks” about coming back with Coddry sharing co-writing duties on the project. The writing and directing duties would fall to Steve Pink.
John Cusak was in the original but is said not to be involved in the negotiations.
The pieces have slowly been coming together for the past several months and sources caution that deal-making is in an early stage and could fail. However, insiders also say that if a deal is made, production would be fast-tracked.
