While many hoped that 2010’s Yogi Bear was an aberration that would quickly be forgotten, it did take over $200 million at the worldwide box office, which is enough for Warner Bros to put a sequel into motion. Now Deadline reports that Jay Chandrasekhar (The Babymakers) has come aboard to rewrite the script and direct Yogi Bear 2.
There’s no news on the plot for this follow-up, or indeed if any of the same cast will return. 2010’s Yogi Bear, saw Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake voicing Yogi and Boo-Boo, with Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh, and T.J. Miller taking the taking live-action roles.
Jay Chandrasekhar is best known for his work as a member of the Broken Lizard troupe, directing, writing, and starring in comedies such as Super Troopers and Beerfest. His most recent movie is The Babymakers, which hits DVD in the UK on Monday.
