Todd Phillips confirms he’d be interested in Hangover 3

“It would be a finale”


With The Hangover Part II opening worldwide next week, director Todd Phillips has spoken out about the possibility of a third and final Hangover movie.

While quizzed at a press conference for Part II, Phillips was surprisingly positive regarding the idea of continuing the series with Part III.

Though the director admits that “quite honestly we really haven’t talked about it as we just finished the movie two weeks ago”, he goes on to add that a third movie could be a trilogy capper.

“The third would very much be a finale and an ending,” Phillips says. “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.

“As far as where it takes place, I’m very open like the Olympic committee to being pitched and presented cities, flown around with wine and women and bribed and then I will make my decision.”

With market analysts expecting Hangover Part II to make a tonne of cash when it opens on 26 May, Phillips may just get his chance to turn his series into a trilogy.

Party on? Or home time? Should the Hangover series become a trilogy? Or is the joke getting a bit old now? Talk to us below...

      Can't wait for the second. It looks just as funny as the original. If they can keep the gags fresh and the characters as interesting and funny, then a trilogy would more than be welcome (I don't say that about many film franchises!)

      Looking forward to the second one too, just a bit worried that it wont live up to expectations. The first 1 is one of my favourite comedies so we'll see...
