Todd Phillips talks Hangover 2 and Due Date

The director on his upcoming projects


Todd Phillips, director of this summer's comedy smash The Hangover, has spoken about his upcoming projects.

He has got father-to-be comedy Due Date, and, of course, the Hangover sequel coming up.

On Due Date, he says: "I've just finished [Due Date] with Robert Downey Jr. and Zach [Galifianakis]... It's an R rating definitely.

"[Zach]'s totally different than he is in The Hangover... He's an aspiring actor in the film and he happens to be in the car with Robert Downey Jr., although Robert Downey Jr. is not playing Robert Downey Jr."

On the Hangover sequel, Phillips said: "We have a really good plot and setup for it that I think people will love. People think, 'Oh, is this is a sequel? Is it going to be about the night that didn't happen?'

"I don't think it's necessarily going to tie in as close to this evening as people think. I think when you have created four really fun characters that have really good chemistry, you can take those guys and put them somewhere else...

"I think most comedies are like that."

      I hope the hangover 2 centres around Justin Barthas funeral this time. They could be at his wake and get blind drunk and forget what happens, maybe even dig up the body and lose it. If they want to show his horrific death that's up to them but I would definitely pay to see that. I think one of the best things about the first one was that he was missing for most of it. I wouldn't even have looked for him.
