MGM in Talks for <i>Hot Tub Time Machine</i> 2

Following up on their announcement of a Ben-Hur reboot yesterday, MGM is apparently now in early talks with Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke for a sequel to the 2010 comedy Hot Tub Time Machine.

The Hollywood Reporter reported director Steve Pink is also in talks to return and may work on a script with Corddry.

John Cusack, who served as Hot Tub Time Machine’s biggest name back at the time of its release, is currently not in talks to return.

The original film—which focused on a group of men who, through the magic of a mechanical hot tub, end up traveling back to their heyday in the ‘80s—was the final film under Mary Parent’s tenure at MGM before the company filed for bankruptcy.

Though the $36 million dollar production grossed only $50 million in its initial run, it has since become a big hit via home entertainment.
