This news is anything but horrible.

"Horrible Bosses 2" has found a replacement for "Horrible Bosses" director Seth Gordon, who dropped out of the sequel in early August due to scheduling conflicts.

"We're the Millers" co-writer Sean Anders has signed on to helm the comedy follow-up, with frequent collaborator John Morris on board to produce. The in-demand duo recently did a rewrite of the script, from "Horrible Bosses" screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, and they've also delivered a draft of the upcoming comedy "Mean Moms."

Anders's directorial credits include "Sex Drive" and last year's Adam Sandler vehicle "That's My Boy."

Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day will all return for "Horrible Bosses 2," presumably because their three characters are once again suffering under bad management. While terrible bosses are a dime a dozen, at least the movie itself is in good hands.
