Brief Plot Details Revealed for The Hangover Part III
Posted 09.10.12 by Ryan
Love or hate the Hangover movies, production has begun on the third and final installment, after co-writer and director Todd Phillips called The Hangover 3 a "fitting conclusion to our three-part opera of mayhem, despair and bad decisions" back in March.
While the sequel will undoubtedly bring back Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and proverbial fourth wheel Justin Bartha in another drug-induced, amnesia-filled adventure, the exact details on The Hangover Part III have been unknown, though Cooper revealed last year that the sequel would "maybe not adhere to the structure." Finally, Warner Bros. has finally released some very brief details about the sequel via ComingSoon.
This time, there's no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.
While it certainly appears that the sequel will indeed "not adhere to the structure" — unlike The Hangover Part II — what does going on "the road" mean for the Wolfpack? Last June, Galifianakis revealed that the other guys would help his character Alan escape from a mental institution, which could be the impetus behind the Wolfpack road trip. It's possible Galifianakis was deliberately misdirecting, so we'll have to wait a bit further for a confirmation over what Philips and co-screenwriter Craig Mazin (The Hangover Part II) have up their sleeve.
Shooting will reportedly take place in occur in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Tijuana and will see the return of Ken Jeong as international criminal Mr. Chow, Heather Graham as the stripper Jade, Mike Epps as Black Doug, while Sasha Barrese, Jamie Chung and Gillian Vigman will return as the guys' long-suffering wives. Mike Tyson will again reprise his franchise role as himself, while John Goodman signed on last week to play "an antagonist in the vein of the character Paul Giamatti played in Hangover II," according to Variety .
