No surprises here, especially given the fact that The Hangover Part II made $86.5 million over Memorial Day weekend!
Last we heard about Hangover Part III, director Todd Phillips said that the movie may stray from coincidental plot devices.
Guess we'll probs learn more sooner than later, because Warner Bros is reportedly bringing on Hangover Part II writer Craig Mazin to write the script for the third movie.
Here's what Mazin had to say about Hangover Part III:
I think the third movie ends with Doug staring at a row of crosses in a graveyard. It’s everyone – his wife, his family is dead, everybody from the first movie is dead. Somebody shows up and tells him his dog is dead.
As for the thought of The Wolf Pack losing another integral member of someone's wedding party, Phillips has previously said that his idea for a third film in the franchise would be something completely different by breaking the now familiar formula of the first two. Honestly, that's the only way I would really be interested in a third one.
While the sequel brought a decent amount of laughs, the jokes and beats are almost exactly the same as the first time. While that's certainly entertaining, a third film really needs to pull out all the stops and do something truly original to finish the series. What do you think?
Couldn't agree more, Craig! We def think it's a good idea to change things up for the third movie! Not sure exactly how we feel about the graveyard, but it's a thought! LOLz.
Are U excited to hear that progress is already being made on Hangover Part III? Will U go see it when it's released?
