STX Entertainment is returning to the world of Bad Moms with a 2017 sequel titled A Bad Moms Christmas. The sequel to the 2016 R-rated comedy will be released in theaters on November 3, 2017 and will reunite the first film’s stars Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn, and Kristen Bell. The holiday-themed adult comedy will be directed by Bad Moms‘ writers/directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.
“This is a brand that has enormous goodwill all over the world, so expanding and extending the Bad Moms franchise in an authentic and irreverent way has been a priority for our team. Jon and Scott have a truly hysterical story that was pure perfection,” stated STX Entertainment Motion Picture Group Chairman Adam Fogelson. “Mila, Kristen and Kathryn are excited to re-team, and we will move forward with A Bad Moms Christmas on a similar time table and in much the same way in which we produced the original.”
2016’s Bad Moms was released in theaters on July 29th and made $180 million worldwide before exiting theaters. The film had a budget of $20 million and was produced by Suzanne Todd and Bill Block.
The Original Plot: In this comedy from the writers of The Hangover, Amy has a seemingly perfect life – a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she’s over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she’s about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities – going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence – putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.
