Horrible Bosses Director Seth Gordon has been forced to walk away from the Horrible Bosses comedy sequel due to scheduling conflicts.

The filmmaker was due to reunite with actors Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day this autumn (13) to begin production on a follow up to their 2011 hit, but he pulled out of the movie on Wednesday (07Aug13), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Studio executives at New Line Cinema are determined to press ahead with Horrible Bosses 2, but are now scrambling to find a replacement for Gordon to keep the project on track for its planned 2014 release.
