It was announced Tuesday that Adam Scott is in talks to join the cast of the upcoming sequel to the 2010 comedy “Hot Tub Time Machine.” Scott is in line to co-star with Rob Corddry, Clark Duke, and Craig Robinson, all returning from the original film, though the top-billed star from the first movie, John Cusack, will not be on board. Producers are making it clear Scott would not be taking over Cusack’s character, but playing someone different.
A parody of/tribute to 1980s teen comedies and the various excesses of the era, “Hot Tub Time Machine” seems like an unlikely candidate for a sequel — it grossed a modest $50 million on a $36 million dollar budget and received mixed notices from critics. But the movie turned out to be a major success on home video, and producers may be counting that folks who caught up with the first movie on DVD or cable will check out the second film in theaters. (This formula helped 1999′s “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” gross more than four times what “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” brought in two years earlier.)
Production on the next “Hot Tub Time Machine” adventure may begin as soon as this June, though details on who will be directing and where the hot tub will take them have yet to be released.
If Scott signs on, though, the droll, deadpan part of the movie’s comic formula will be in very capable hands.Tweet
