Paramount+ Cancels 'Workaholics' Movie

The Workaholics film has officially been cancelled by Paramount+.

Franchise staple Adam Devine broke the news on Instagram and detailed the reasons as to why the streamer canned the spinoff movie just weeks before they were due to start filming. “Welp, Paramount + decided to cancel the Workaholics movie. Obviously, this news is the loosest butthole. We were supposed to begin filming in 5 weeks! P + told us don’t fit their new “global” strategy…” he wrote.

The actor further shared his disappointment in the film’s cancellation, especially considering the fact that he will not be working with his best friends again, “We are deeply butt hurt about this decision because we were so excited to bring the weird one last time. I’m butt hurt that I don’t get to work with my best friends again. I’m butt hurt for the fans, and I’m butt hurt for our loyal crew, and other cast members who are now going to have to scramble to find new jobs.”

Devine added that they are currently in the process of pitching the spinoff movie to other streaming services and that he will talk about it with co-stars and friends Kyle Newacheck, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson during their This Is Important podcast. ”We are out to other streamers, and hopefully we will get to make this insanely fun movie somewhere else. Tomorrow tune into our podcast @podimportant to hear us talk about it,” he continued, signing off his message with his character’s last name. “As always, take it sleazy, and I’m out. -Demamp.”

The Workaholics movie was announced almost two years ago and would have focused on “what it’s like to work through the pandemic.”
