Hangover Wolf Pack to make 15 million apiece for third film

Jan. 25, 2012by: Alex Riviello

Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms have looked at the enourmous box office receipts for THE HANGOVER 2, realized that this won't last forever, and have asked for 15 million each for the third film, aginst backend.

It would be a nice raise for the stars, who earned less than a million on the first film and five for the second (plus back-end, which bounced their earnings up into the teens).

Warner Bros, now about to lose its two biggest franchises in HARRY POTTER and THE DARK KNIGHT, is in negotiations right now, and it looks like they're going to pay. The first film grossed $467 million worldwide and the second made $581, so it certainly would be easy money for them.

If the deal goes through the film will shoot in LA this summer and be ready for a release Memorial Day 2013. HANGOVER 3 (or whatever it's eventually called) won't repeat the events all over again like the second one did, either, as it apparently will give up the forgotten events forumula.

I actually wouldn't mind them doing the same shtick a 3rd time. As long as they don't do it horribly like the last time.

Wait, a third film?

I had no idea there was even a second one. I remember a remake coming out back in May, but never a sequel... Interesting.

Maybe I'm just a bit jealous but who needs more than $1 million? I see all these high profile actors like Johnny Depp and Denzel Washington getting paid $15+ million for every movie they're in, which I think is ridiculous. How can anybody spend that much money, let alone $1 million?! Well, unless they're going to give it to charity and stuff, all of this is mind boggling. /endrant.

Thats great but...

What about Justin Bartha! I felt sorry for the guy getting barely any screen time in the 2nd movie after his character in the 1st hangover was missing for most of the movie. And now it seems he's getting shafted from the 3rd as far as salary goes. Im sure this guy wants to get in on the action too!

This is good news for everyone involved, and it was cool for the three leads to stick together on their asking price instead of one hiking it up to something ridiculous (cough* Rush Hour trilogy, cough*, Chris Tucker, cough*). I'm also happy to see the franchise pull a Die Hard With a Vengence and switch up the premise for the third one. I hope they keep the Godfather font and just call this The Hangover Part III.

Let them wake up in HELL...I'm serious...then they try to fight their way out thru a hellish funny as fuck version of L.A, literally trying to find THEMSELVES... and they do, only to get back to realize they were trapped in their own minds all linked while they were tripping on Alan's Jenkem (hallucinogenic inhalant created from fermented human waste.) in his room at his Dad's house.

I love both Hangover films and have no problem with these guys asking AND getting $15 million a piece. All three guys are really talented and seem like real, good genuine guys. Their chemistry is one of the main, big reasons why both movies made so much money and why both films are so funny and watchable again and again. They're the perfect comedic trio.

I am just really glad that all three guys are blowing up because they really are talented. Especially Cooper. He has come a LONG way

I don't know what it is that Zach does that rubs people the wrong way. I mean I know he has lot of fans (like Me), but he also has alot of haters. I respect your opinion of not liking him, but I think he is a brilliant comedian. His humor is definitely an acquired taste, I will give you that.

Zach Galifianakis' schtick got old after the first Hangover. He was funny in The Hangover, irritating in Due Date, and straight up infuriating in The Hangover remake. I can't take him anymore.

Not only are they funny but those guys are sharp. Sounds like their playing a game of chicken with the studio.

As for the films, I'm one of the five people on Earth that thought the second was great. Bring on a third!

Sidenote: I would love to see the third have all these guys have a normal morning and an eerily normal next day. However, once news reports start popping up and police sketches, all three guys are forced back to the scene of the crime to figure out what happened.

I guess I am the second person within the five considering that I loved Hangover Part 2.

I loved the second one too, as much as the first. I actually don't get what all the backlash was about this summer.

How can WB lose the rights to The Dark Knight? Doesn't WB own DC Comics?

The article didn't say anything about rights. He just means that there's no more books to make Harry Potter movies and The Dark Knight Rises is Christopher Nolan's last Batman movie

Can you say overpaid? I think it is getting ridiculous how much actors are making. 9 million should be the ceiling but going double digit is ridiculous.

Well as someone who absolutely loved The Hangover and absolutely HATED the The Hangover 2, I don't know how I feel about this. Can't really hate on a $15 million paycheck though. If they do something drastic like, oh I don't know, CHANGE THE FUCKING PLOT A LITTLE then this could be awesome but I am not watching the same exact damn movie again.

Man...

Wish I had the power to make deals like that.
And I'm not against a third Hangover film, but I am SUPER worried that it will turn into the American Pie series for our next generation. I hope that doesn't happen.

Worth every penny.

I'd see a dozen movies with those 3 guys together. (Of course knowing our luck the Hangover would go to #12)

They deserve it. Hollywood has been coasting for a few years now on underpaid "up and comers" who already established themselves, such as Seth Rogen, as the antidote to the bloated budget, underperforming movies from the likes of Jim Carrey. This was inevitable and the guys deserve it completely, considering the profits their star statuses have generated.
