Earlier this summer, the Cameron Diaz- and Justin Timberlake-starring R-rated comedy Bad Teacher cost $20m to make and brought in nearly $215m in worldwide ticket sales. If you imagined that there was going to be a sequel made to that film, well then you’re probably right, I’m sure that’s inevitable. But there isn’t yet word on any progress on that front, there is, however, some news to hold us over. Deadline Santee is reporting that Sony is re-teaming the Bad Teacher team of director Jake Kasdan and screenwriters Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky for a new relationship comedy.

The new film doesn’t yet have a title, but it tells the story of a Supercuts manager who advises his best friend to break off his engagement, and then promptly falls in love with the fiancée. Loyalties are questioned, a lot is learned about love, and apparently people get haircuts. I mean, honestly…this project doesn’t have a title yet, but they already know that the main character is definitely going to work at a Supercuts? How hilariously random. I’d have to guess that either Eisenberg or Stupnitsky is going to be tapping into the horrors of a past day job for inspiration on this one. They can count me in, though, Bad Teacher wasn’t anything special, but it made me laugh enough to be a good time. I think it would have been even bigger if it didn’t come out the same summer that Bridesmaids ruled the world.
