The Hangover: Part III in the works??

31 May

I am all for a third installment of this movie, but can we at least let the second one sink in? Although I’m excited to find out where they are going in Part III. Any thoughts? Steve.

‘Hangover’ scribe in early talks for third film

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – As “The Hangover: Part II” speeds past a record-breaking $200 million at the worldwide box office, Warner Bros. is beginning to get the creative gang together for the third part.

Craig Mazin, who co-wrote the Bangkok-set sequel, is in early talks to work on the new script. Story details are being kept secret.

Todd Phillips, who directed the first two movies, has intimated in recent interviews that he has an idea for a third installment of the raunchy comedy movies, which center around a simple concept: a trio of guys — played by Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms — black out after a wild bachelor party and then retrace their steps to find out what really happened.

Warners had no comment although a high-level executive said that a third movie is all but a given. The latest film has become the fastest comedy to hit the $200 million level. It grossed $135 million in its first five days of release across North America and an additional $70.1 million in 40 overseas markets.

Mazin wrote the sequel with Phillips and Scot Armstrong. His credits include a pair of “Scary Movie” sequels, and he also directed the comic book parody “Superhero Movie.”

Creative Artists Agency, the talent firm that represents the writers, the director, and the three actors, said no deals have been made for a third film.
