Thornton Up For “Bad Santa” Sequel

Out doing promotion for “Faster”, Billy Bob Thornton revealed to Collider that he’d be up for doing a sequel to his 2003 pitch black comedy “Bad Santa”.

“Bad Santa’s become like a classic Christmas movie. People watch It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street and Bad Santa. Now its sort of the box set. And there’s been talk of making a sequel to it, which I actually would like to do. I’ve never done a sequel to one of my movies, but that one makes sense to me to do it” says Thornton.

Thornton adds that a lot will depend on the director having the balls to keep the film dark and edgy – “Probably get a director who’s got the juice to, with whoever makes it, you know, who puts up the money, to get it in blood. That’s the way you have to do it, and hopefully it’ll work.”
