Hate your horrible boss? Write a movie about killing him

Charlie Day and Jennifer Aniston in Horrible Bosses

Charlie Day and Jennifer Aniston in Horrible Bosses

“I wanted to see if I could make something good come out of something so so awful,” says Michael Markowitz (In-LawsIt’s All RelativeBecker), who started writing the R-rated comedy  Horrible Bosses based on his real-life experience in 2005. Markowitz spent the next few years perfecting his draft until teaming up with screenwriters John Francis Daley (Bones) and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Bones$#*! My Dad SaysThe New Adventures of Old Christine).

The film is about three friends, played by Jason BatemanCharlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis, who hate their bosses so much, they decide life without them would be much better. When the friends finally conclude that whacking each other’s boss is the best way to find peace, raunchy, offensive, and often horribly lewd wackiness ensues. The film also stars Kevin SpaceyColin Farrell, and — in her most surprising role yet — Jennifer AnistonScript sat down with the writing trio to see how they sought creative justice against all their “horrible bosses.”
