Will There Be A Hangover 3?

The sequel to the ever-so-popular film The Hangover has barely been out for a week and already the idea of Hangover 3 is in the works. The first week of The Hangover: Part II grossed a whopping $200 million, and the success of the film so far has put the idea of a third film into Warner Bros. heads.

The first Hangover film raised a very impressive $467 million during its release, and the second is expected to beat that number within a week or two. It’s amazing how much money Americans give to two hour movies, but I guess if it’s funny and entertaining it’s priceless. The figures have inspired Hangover II co-writer Craig Mazin to start thinking about a third movie. The idea was actually brought to the surface before number two even came out, but was put on hold until the movie was released and the numbers were collected.

According to the article, Warner Bros. is getting the main crew of Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms back together for the film, but that none are obligated to do a third because their contracts were not extended. If the third film is given the OK, the stars could potentially see a big raise in their paychecks because of it.

According to the film’s director, Todd Phillips:

Quite honestly we really haven’t talked about it as we just finished the movie two weeks ago, this is the first time we’ve all been together in awhile, Phillips said at a recent press conference. If we were to do a third one, if the audience… if the desire was there… I think we have a clear idea where that would head and it’s certainly not in the same template you’ve seen these movies.

With the film now definitely on the way, fans can anticipate an ending to the Wolf Pack’s adventures, Phillips promised.

The third would very much a finale and an ending. The most I could say about it and I haven’t discussed it with these actors is that it is not following that template but very much a new idea.

I think that everyone should just sit back and see how the sequel takes off and not rush into a third movie already. No continuation of a film is ever as good as the original, and I’ve heard the second one is funny but very similar to the first, so a third could just be disastrous for the entire film all together. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what the experts come up with.

What do you think of a third Hangover film? Are you a fan of the movies or do you think this will make it worse?
