Phillips Talks “Hangover” Sequel Status

“The Hangover” director Todd Phillips tells Entertainment Weekly he’s currently at the halfway point in the script for the upcoming sequel to this year’s comedy smash.

The change of setting won’t be a bother for the helmer who says “What people loved about The Hangover was not Las Vegas or the bachelor party but these three characters. I think you can take those characters and put them in other situations, and you don’t need the sell of Vegas and a bachelor party and all that other stuff.”

Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis are all expected to return for the film. Where this potential new location might be however is being kept under wraps for now.

Phillips is also at work on the comedy “Due Date” right now which stars Robert Downey Jr., Galifianakis, Michelle Monaghan, and Jaime Foxx.
