'Hangover 3' already in motion

Zach Galifanikis talks of Wolf pack trilogy.

'Hangover 3' already in motion

In news as shocking as infidelity in footballers The Hangover: Part 3 is already moving ahead. After the sleeper success of the first movie ($467m worldwide) and the monumental opening weekend of the second ($343m in two weeks), the idea that a third film was ever in doubt seems pretty ludicrous.

Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine Zach Galifiankis stated: "They want to do a Hangover III, I'm getting fricking phone calls already."

He also spoke of a possible move away from the formula that was essentially repeated verbatim for the first sequel. He mentioned the possibility of the film being set in an asylum with Alan as a resident and the rest of the gang attempting to break him out.

Whilst this would put paid to rumours that Amsterdam was the intended destination for the third, the chances of them busting Alan free and then heading to the pot and prostitute capital of the world can't be ruled out.

When director Todd Philips was recently asked about the location for the third film he told Collider: “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.”

The Hangover: Part Two is currently in UK cinemas.
