Todd Phillips confirmed with MTV today that a “Hangover” sequel was completely in the works, slated to hit the big screen in 2010.
Warner Bros. had been in talks for the sequel before “The Hangover” even hit theaters last week, showing its faith the film would be the box office success it turned out to be.
When Blast had a chance to speak with “The Hangover” star Ed Helms, he had not been under the impression a sequel was as set as it now is. He told Blast the talks were to get ahead of the game so they were not faced with waiting too long to get a sequel in the works like they did with “Old School:” a sequel that recently popped up on IMDB after the successful opening weekend of “The Hangover.” Sounds like Warner Bros. has some big plans for their hit R-rated comedies.
Phillips confirmed that his four leading men: Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha would all be returning for “The Hangover” sequel. So what exactly will the sequel be about? With the film still a year away, nothing can be certain, but we like Helms’ suggestion best:
“The only way to heighten “The Hangover” I think, is to take it outer space. So yeah, I think it would be a bachelor party in a space station.”
That is definitely something we would pay to see.
