A sequel to 2010 comedy 'Hot Tub Time Machine' is being planned by MGM, according to reports.

Stars including Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke are thought to be in exploratory talks with the studio about reprising their roles.

But so far, John Cusack is not yet taking the plunge into the foam.

The film ended up being a modest success for MGM, making $50 million (£31 million) at the box office, from its $36 million (£22 million) budget, and a good deal more in the home entertainment market.

The premise surrounded four men bored with their lives who were transported back to the 80s thanks to a hot tub with time travelling capabilities.

It also starred Chevy Chase and harked back to the screwball comedies of the era, of which Cusack was a star the first time around.

It's thought that if talks go well, a sequel could be 'fast-tracked', while Corddry is being eyed to write the script for original director Steve Pink to helm.
