Hot Tub Time Machine Sequel Getting Plugged In, John Cusack Not Involved

Though he may later decide to strip off and jump in, John Cusack is the only one of Hot Tub Time Machine‘s principles not yet negotiating to star in MGM’s developing sequel. I won’t be expecting him.

According to The Hollywood Reporter director Steve Pink is also engaging in the “exploratory talks.”

Perhaps the most interesting element is that Rob Corddry:

could end up being involved in fashioning a script

Apparently with Steve Pink.

Perhaps that’s part of Corddry’s negotiation demands, or if not demands, “explorations.”

Should the deals line up, production will apparently be fast-tracked. Makes sense – I liked Hot Tub Time Machine well enough, but its value as a franchise-starter can only cool off as the years go on.
