We’ve all woken up with headaches after a great night out, but for the cast and crew of The Hangover, the third film will be their last.
The third instalment of The Hangover is thought to be the last according to director Todd Phillips.
According to the Guardian, the comedy director said: “We’re going to surprise a lot of people with the final chapter we have planned. It will be a fitting conclusion to our three-part opera of mayhem, despair and bad decisions.”
Phillips (Due Date , Old School) also revealed that the new film is set to be released next Spring and will feature the original four characters: Phil Wenneck, Stu Price, Alan Garner and Doug Billings.
The first Hangover film was a huge hit and became the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time in America. However, the 2011 sequel – which took the bachelor quartet to Bangkok – was criticized for being very similar to its predecessor. However, despite the criticism, The Hangover Part II was still a huge hit and broke box-office records.
Film-makers have hinted that the drunken men’s antics could take place in Los Angeles, and will offer something very different from the first two films. However, seeing as the first two parts made $467.5m and $581.5m worldwide, it seems unlikely that Phillips and screenwriter, Craig Mazin, will venture too far from the film’s signature memory-loss-meets-carnage structure.
There is no word whether legendary boxer, Mike Tyson, will return for the third film with his tiger, or if we’ll be seeing any more from Ken Jeong who portrayed flamboyant gangster Leslie Chow. We’ll keep you posted!
