Bad Teacher movie sequel in the works

June 21st, 2013 3:11am EDT

Bad Teacher Cameron Diaz's hit comedy Bad Teacher is getting a sequel.

Filmmaker Jake Kasdan, who took charge of the 2011 movie, will return to direct the follow-up, although it is not yet known if Diaz will reprise her role as an alcoholic, drug-taking school teacher for the second installment.

The original release, starring Jason Segel and Diaz's ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake as the actress' geeky onscreen crush, grossed $216 million (£139.4 million) worldwide and has since inspired a TV sitcom based on the film.

The series, written by Hilary Winston, is set to feature Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist star Ari Graynor in the lead role as a trophy wife who turns to teaching after her rich husband dumps her and leaves her with nothing.
