Third “Hangover” plans underway as sequel earns huge bucks

By Sean O’Connell Pour yourself another drug-laced cocktail and belly up to the multiplex, because Warner is moving ahead with a third “Hangover” after seeing the overwhelming reaction to Todd Phillips’ latest comedy.

“The Hangover Part II” set all kinds of box office records over the Memorial Day weekend, posting the largest opening for a comedy in history and raking in a grand total of $135M in the States. Factor in a few international markets, and Phillips’ comedy crept close to the $200M mark in just its opening weekend.

This despite some terrible reviews claiming the sequel took the lazy way out by simply mirroring the original film. (I tend to disagree with the negative reviews on this one, but understand I’m in the minority for liking “Hangover 2” more than the original.)

So screenwriter Craig Mazin has his work cut out for him as he’s set to work on a second sequel. Don’t copy the original, come up with new jokes, and all should be right with the world. Mazin co-wrote the w Bangkok-based sequel, and is in “early talks” to pen the next film, according to THR.

In interviews, Phillips and his cast have made it clear that they no longer have to follow the “one crazy evening” format for a third “Hangover” movie, and that the characters played by Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis are now strong enough to stand on their own. Let’s hope that’s true.
