Doug Ellin to Rewrite and Possibly Direct BAD SANTA 2

     May 30, 2013


Doug Ellin of Entourage fame has turned in his script for the move-version of the HBO comedy and, while he waits to find out when he’ll start directing it, he’s signed on to rewrite and possibly direct Bad Santa 2.  The original 2003 dark comedy starred Billy Bob Thornton in the title role, alongside the late Bernie Mac and John Ritter.  Thornton would like to start on the sequel in the fall, after he wraps production on London Fields.  As Deadline reports, Ellin will rewrite the Johnny Rosenthal script for Bad Santa 2 and it remains to be seen whether or not he’ll also direct.
