Hangover 2 Won't Be in Las Vegas
Posted 12.01.09 by Ryan
The Hangover director Todd Phillips is busy working on his next movie, Due Date, but told Entertainment Weekly that the script for his next-next project, The Hangover 2, is already half-complete. Phillips says that he had ideas for the sequel while he was shooting the first movie.
You always have those days when you say, "If we did another one, wouldn't it be funny if...?" Then once the movie tested so well, Warner Bros. came to me even before it was released and said, "Let's do another one."
Phillips wouldn't disclose much of the plot of the sequel, though he says it will put Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis in an entirely new situation from the original movie.
What people loved about The Hangover was not Las Vegas or the bachelor party but these three characters. I think you can take those characters and put them in other situations, and you don't need the sell of Vegas and a bachelor party and all that other stuff.
Wait, is Phillips suggesting a Hangover without a hangover?
