Hot Tub Time Machine

According to The Hollywood Reporter, MGM is in exploratory talks (aka dipping their toes in the water) with Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke to see if there’s a possibility of making a Hot Tub Time Machine sequel. Apparently John Cusack isn’t involved right now (which is curious, because he’s the ball game), but there’s a chance Corddry might work with Steve Pink on the script. Pink is, as you can guess, in talks to return to the director’s chair.

Hot Tub Time Machine was a funny enough movie, and bringing these comedians back together would certainly be better than, say, watching Grown Ups or being clawed to death by a horse-sized duck. Still, with the way the original ended, it’s going to take some narrative hopscotch to get the guys back in time. Think about it. If you saw all your dreams of wealth, fame, love and success come true, you probably wouldn’t go near another hot tub again. So what entices everyone to take the plunge? That’s the inexplicable part, but there’s no doubt that — if this moves forward — Pink will find something appropriately ridiculous to bring everyone into the second act.

So MGM wants it, but do you? And where do they go? A Reality Bites-style look at being 20-something in the 90s?
