The Hangover 3 will start filming in September

Bradley Cooper talks sequels


Despite a raft of lukewarm reviews and unfavourable comparisons with the original, The Hangover Part II grossed nearly $600 million worldwide, more than enough to convince Warner Bros that a second sequel is in order. And according to Bradley Cooper, that sequel could be along sooner rather than later.

Cooper appeared on The Graham Norton Show over the weekend, and told the host that filming could get started in the second half of 2012.

“I hope we’re going start shooting in September,” said Cooper. “I know Todd Phillips is working on the script. We adhered to the formula in the second one, [and] the third would close the trilogy.”

Intriguingly enough, Cooper thinks said formula might be discarded for round three. “I think it’ll take place in L.A. and not adhere to the structure,” he said. “It might be different.”

It might indeed, although having seen the second movie rack up a huge worldwide box office without deviating from the drunken-blur formula of the original, we’d be surprised if Warner sanctioned a significant change in direction.

That might spoil co-writer Craig Mazin’s plans, however, if we’re to believe the idea he ran by Collider earlier this year.

“I think the third movie ends with Doug staring at a row of crosses in a graveyard,” said Mazin. “It’s everyone – his wife, his family is dead, everybody from the first movie is dead. Somebody shows up and tells him his dog is dead.” Go on Warner, surprise us!

Would you welcome a third Hangover, or is it time to sober up? Tell us, below.

      Another movie of the same story with the same jokes. Must be pretty easy making a living in Hollywood these days. Never known it to celebrate mediocrity as much as it does now.

      Yeah I thought the first one was average at best. Very forgettable. Didnt bother with the 2nd one as it seemed identical from what i saw of the trailer. And now a third instalment. Its up there with the Shrek series.

      to be fair to Galiafinakis he apparently wanted to make the second one a lot more messed up and play with his character more (including shave his beard) but they turned it down. I'm impressed they got him back for a third film.

      I enjoyed the first well enough, but the second made me yawn.. exact same plot/jokes, just plug in a different location, add a few minor characters. Ok, the monkey was cute, but I don't spend money at the theater to go "AWWWW" at a monkey that has 3 minutes of screen time.So, unless they totally revitalize the formula for the third one, can't say I'll be overly eager. But since I live in America, it will still win at the box office for a month straight, regardless. Because we are lemmings.

      @CFG again you go into a rant that is both pointless and annoying. no1 cares who your mum thinks is hot, jesus christ dude. And from the sounds of the way you word it, this Drew person, i'm guessing you have met once, maybe twice and are ave become "bff's" in that stupid way tweenage girls do. Ah naw, you do not look like him, i mean at all, you look more like Greg Wallace.
