Will Hangover 3 Start Shooting This Summer?

by at . Comments

The Hangover was one of those cultural explosions that caused the entertainment Richter scale to go off the charts. The second film, not quite as much -- yet it made over a hundred million dollars more than the first! Our first Hangover banked $467 million, while the second earned $581 million. When Movie Fanatic caught up with the film series’ director Todd Phillips in May, he said, “We always envisioned it as a trilogy. The third would be very much a finale and an ending.”

The Boys are Back!

Looks like the third movie is going forward and The Hollywood Reporter is saying that stars Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper are negotiating to return for a cool $15 million each. With a film series that makes more money as it goes along, consider this deal done.

Warner Bros. is hoping to conclude all business sides of The Hangover 3 journey and start filming the flick sometime this summer. The movie will be set in Los Angeles and all involved are eyeing a May 2013 release.

The Hangover Quotes

Alan Garner: Hello. How 'bout that ride in? I guess that's why they call it Sin City.
[awkward laughter]
Alan Garner: You guys might not know this, but I consider myself a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one-man wolf pack. But when my sister brought Doug home, I knew he was one of my own. And my wolf pack... it grew by one. So there... there were two of us in the wolf pack... I was alone first in the pack, and then Doug joined in later. And six months ago, when Doug introduced me to you guys, I thought, "Wait a second, could it be?" And now I know for sure, I just added two more guys to my wolf pack. Four of us wolves, running around the desert together, in Las Vegas, looking for strippers and cocaine. So tonight, I make a toast!

Alan Garner: Do you know if the hotel is pager friendly?
Lisa: What do you mean?
Alan Garner: I'm not getting a sig' on my beeper.
