Zach Galifianakis Spills Brief The Hangover 3 Details
06.11.11 by Ryan
The huge box office success of The Hangover Part II ($349 million worldwide and counting) made a sequel seem inevitable, a move Warner Bros. made official when the studio hired screenwriter Craig Mazin to write the third installment.
The Hangover Part II cast members Jamie Chung and Justin Bartha have both publicly stated that Amsterdam would be the perfect location for The Hangover Part III, but, while likely, that has yet to be confirmed.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Zach Galifianakis wouldn't confirm Amsterdam as a location, but did say a third Hangover was on the way. "They want to do a Hangover III," said Galifianakis. "I'm getting fricking phone calls already."
According to what Galifianakis told the magazine, The Hangover III would skip the format of the first two movies and would focus on the Wolfpack (Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Bartha) helping his character get out of a mental institution.
Before The Hangover Part II opened last month, director Todd Phillips revealed that a third Hangover would not be "in the same template" and would be "very much a new idea." He also said that the sequel "would very much [be] a finale and an ending."
That is, unless The Hangover III makes another fortune at the box office.
