MGM Plans "Hot Tub Time Machine" Sequel

MGM is in early talks to develop a sequel to the 2010 comedy "Hot Tub Time Machine," the last movie MGM produced before it went into bankruptcy before reforming into its current incarnation.

There is said to be "exploratory talks" with Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke to reprise their roles for the follow-up, however lead star John Cusack is not involved at this point.

Corddry could be involved in scripting the film with the original film's director Steve Pink. Though things are still in very early stages, if a deal is made production would be fast-tracked.

The first film made $50 million from a $36 million budget, but became a major hit on DVD, Blu-ray and VOD.

The story follows four men, bored and unhappy with their lives, who travel back in time via a hot tub to a fateful night of their teenaged years in the 1980s.
