“We’re the Millers,” a Warner Brothers film released in 2013, was a surprising smash. The road trip comedy cost only $37 million to make, a pittance of its stunning international total of $269.9 million. The movie’s ending, paired with the studio revenues, paved the way for a potential sequel featuring the dysfunctional Miller family.
The story does, in fact, have a fascinating premise with a sequel-friendly finale. Small-time pot dealer David Clark (Jason Sudeikis) is persuaded by his ruthless boss/drug lord Brad Gudlinger to transfer a big amount of marijuana into the United States from Mexico (Ed Helms). In exchange for a piece of the payout, David persuades his neighbours — stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston), quirky youngster Kenny (Will Poulter), and runaway Casey (Emma Roberts) — to accompany him and act as a normal family. When a vacationing DEA Agent, played by Nick Offerman, begins to suspect the group, things get hazardous.
The gang is eventually placed in witness protection, but the devious Millers indicate that they may not be done with the con artist’s life: Croppings of marijuana plants growing in the Millers’ suburban backyard are exposed when the camera pulls back. It’s ideal for a follow-up.
Is it still possible that a sequel to “We’re the Millers” will be made eight years later?
We’re The Millers 2 has been announced, but that’s about it for now
According to We Got This Covered, New Line Cinema stated there would be a sequel soon following the success of “We’re The Millers.” The business announced the addition of writer Adam Sztykiel, who was best known for his work on the comedy “Due Date,” starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis at the time. Rawson Marshall Thurber, who helmed the original, will return to direct the sequel, according to the studio. Sztykiel has since written the NBC sitcom “Undateable,” which stars disgraced comic Chris D’Elia. Thurber has also worked on other projects, such as the film “Skyscraper” and the upcoming Netflix action movie “Red Notice,” which stars Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
Perhaps other projects have slowed progress on a decent follow-up script for the fictitious family. Fans of the comedy can, however, keep hoping. “We’re The Millers 2” now sits at the top of both Thurber’s and Sztykiel’s filmographies on IMDB, waiting to be reclassified from “announced” to “in production.”
The filmmakers have a lot of options for the sequel because the previous picture included a lot of comic actors. Perhaps Edie, played by Kathryn Hahn, The Millers’ old acquaintance from Westview, will pay them a visit in the future.
