Christoph Waltz - Christoph Waltz to join Horrible Bosses 2

Christoph Waltz is set to join 'Horrible Bosses 2'.

The 57-year-old actor is in talks to star opposite Chris Pine in the comedy sequel, which will see Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day and Jason Bateman reprise their roles from the first film.

Christoph was rumoured to be joining the film earlier this month, but was forced to refuse the offer because of conflicting scheduling.

However, Deadline now reports that the hunk has a slot available for filming and is likely to take up the role to play an evil father.

Movie bosses are hoping to top the mean bosses seen in the hit 2011 original, including Colin Farrell, Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston, who were all targeted by their disgruntled employees in the dark comedy.

'That's My Boy' director Sean Anders was recently confirmed to helm the sequel, which will be released in November 2014.

It was reported earlier this year that Jamie Foxx - who starred alongside Waltz in Quentin Tarantino's Oscar-winning 'Django Unchained' - is in talks to return as Dean ''Mother*****h'' Jones, who acted as a mentor to distressed workers Nick (Bateman), Dale Arbus (Day) and Kurt Buckman (Sudeikis).
