    'Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs' Sequel To Be Written By 'Horrible Bosses' Writers

    John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein Penning Script; Phil Lord & Chris Miller Not Returning To DirectHitting theaters in 2009, "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs" was a surprise hit both with critics and audiences.
