Warner Brothers Already Developing The Hangover Sequel

April 5, 2009

The Hangover

Roughly two months before The Hangover even arrives in theaters, Warner Brothers has preemptively given the greenlight to director Todd Phillips and Scot Armstrong to start writing a sequel. Variety confirms that the studio has made this "multimillion-dollar commitment" based on early test screening results and the reaction to the newest trailer (which can be seen here) at ShoWest. Todd Phillips will be back to direct and produce The Hangover sequel. WB also has made deals to bring back Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms, who star in the original, which is due out in theaters on June 5th.

I would say this is normally very good news, an early sign that The Hangover might be pretty awesome, but I'm a bit confused. From the trailers we've seen, I can't imagine how a sequel would even work? The story follows three groomsmen who take their friend to Las Vegas for one final crazy night, only to wake up the following morning to find the groom missing. My guess is that they do end up finding him, right? And if so, I'm sure he still gets married? So in the sequel, maybe one of the other guys is now the one getting married, and it's about his night on the town? Who knows, but now I can't wait until June 5th, that's for sure!

Hopefully the sequel doesn't get rushed and ends up sucking. Looking forward to the first one, since that's what we should be doing right now, lol.

They could do a sequel but i dont think it should take place in vegas like this one and they should add a cool side character like Neal Patrick Harris was in Harald and Kumar.haha

At first, I thought this was another remake of Three Men and a Baby (Trois Homme et un couffin). Is that what this is supposed to be based off of, or is it something new?

This is must see movie of the year. I don't care for Tranformers 2, Star Trek, or Terminator as much as I care about this film. I guess the Hangover 2 would take place after wedding night? maybe the bride disappears and they have to find her?

Guys remember Allan wins 80grands in CASINO.... and in the end Phil says we should come back to take down the whole city.... thats where the story should begin.... They come back to win, get screwed again and that's where the fun begins.....

They would do a disservice to the people if they didn't make a sequel to this movie.

The Hangover was always going to be laugh out loud funny ever since Ed Helms,otherwise known as Andy from The Office, is in it
