Cast of summer's surprise hit sign up for sequel
Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis will all be paid in “the vicinity of $5m” (£3.3m) to reprise their roles, dwarfing their original deals, which were reportedly in the region of $1m.
It had previously been reported that the three stars were hesitant to to make a follow-up.
The original saw three friends wake up in a Las Vegas hotel room following a bachelor party, only to find it now contained a tiger, a baby, one of them had got married, one had been to hospital, and they were missing the groom.
Director Todd Phillips has previously signalled a sequel was on the cards, suggesting production was to begin in November.
