Considering The Hangover Part II had been optioned before the first was even released, it’s not shocking to discover that Craig Mazin, who co-scripted the sequel, has been signed to write a third film. While there’s been some conjecture about the Wolf Pack heading to Amsterdam, we’re only into that concept if the trio run into Harold & Kumar for a mutual trilogy closer. But considering Warner Bros. exec Jeff Robinov announcing that he has dreams about a fourth Hangover movie, it doesn’t seem likely the new film will be quite so final—even if director Todd Phillips has suggested he’d like it to be.
While Ken Jeong is definitely up for another go-round (“Those guys are like family to me, so it doesn’t matter—big part or small part…Well, I guess I know a thing or two about small parts”), the primary trio have yet to announce their excitement. Will Ed Helms, Zack Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper all be into another run, or will someone get choosy/greedy? Will a third movie be radically different in tone or another wedding-related adventure in an exotic locale? As long as the box office doesn’t drop precipitously after Part II‘s blockbuster Memorial Day weekend, we should find out sooner than later.
