Cameron Diaz‘s “Bad Teacher” is getting a sequel. Justin Male is working on the script that will be directed by Jake Kasden. Diaz herself has yet to sign-on for the project.

“Bad Teacher” is turning into its own franchise. A sitcom based on the film has been picked up by CBS and will star Ari Graynor. It has already received a 13-episode mid-season order.

“’Bad Teacher’ was a hit not just in North America, but throughout the world. We’re excited that Jake will be returning to develop and helm the sequel. We love Justin’s take on the material — it hits all the notes that made the first film such a breakthrough hit and also takes the characters in a new direction that is fresh and fun,” said Hannah Minghella, president of production for Columbia Pictures.

The original “Bad Teacher” film starred Diaz, Jason Segel and Justin Timberlake. It is unclear which actors, if any, will reprise their roles.
