These guys had a couple of years to sober up and it looks like they’re ready for round three. In 2009, when “The Hangover” hit cinemas, the Warner Bros. comedy about three groomsmen who lose their about-to-be-wed buddy during their drunken misadventures, made tons of cash at the box office. It was no surprise that two years later, a sequel was spawned, following the exact same premise except this time, was set in Thailand.
Since the sequel grossed $200 million, there was of course talk of a third film back in June. At the time, most of the cast have said that they think the next film should be set in Amsterdam.
Fast forward to today, and Bradley Cooper has confirmed to the National Ledger that a third “Hangover” could be coming soon.
Cooper revealed filming on the third installment should begin next September (2012) and he believes the film will be set in California.
He tells TV host Graham Norton, “I hope we’ll start shooting next September. I know (director) Todd Phillips is working on the script. We stuck to the formula in the second one but the third would need to close the trilogy. I think it’ll take place in L.A. and not adhere to the structure.”
Glad they won’t be sticking to the same routine this time around. The second one was funny and all, but the same old thing can only work for so long.
