Bradley Cooper (sort of) confirms “Hangover” rumor?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Bradley Cooper is in San Diego drumming up support and buzz for the recently announced “Paradise Lost” adaptation he’s going to do with director Alex Proyas (“Dark City”). But while talking to press, he might have dropped a serious hint at the direction of the third “Hangover” (should that sequel actually happen).

Cooper was questioned by EW about Zach Galifianakis’ comments that the next “Hangover” might involve Cooper, Justin Bartha and Ed Helms breaking the deranged Alan out of a mental institute.

“You know what? That might be right,” Cooper said.

When pressed on the comment – because many thought Galifianakis tossed it out there just to throw nagging journalists down a different road – Cooper hedged by saying, “I mean, I have no idea. But that sounds good!”

And you know what? It does sound good. It would be a separation from the wake-up-hungover formula that powered Todd Phillips’ first two comedies to box office superstardom. And given the success of “The Hangover Part II,” you know a third one will happen. I’m thrilled Phillips wants to go down a new avenue, and if Cooper’s right, that idea could work very well.
