Will the Wolfpack be back for The Hangover Part III?

May. 18, 2011by: Dave Davis

Superficially, THE HANGOVER PART II seems to be relocating the rambunctious bachelor party boys to a new city, while simultaneously revisiting pretty much everything else about the first movie (check the trailer comparison below for some pretty glaring evidence of the "If it ain't broke" theory in action).

Still, director Todd Phillips isn't planning to thrice tread the same coincidental memory loss concept if he gets the very probable opportunity to make THE HANGOVER PART III.  

"If we were to do a third one," Phillips said at a recent press conference for the sequel, "if the audience…if the desire was there…I think we have a clear idea where that would head and it’s certainly not in the same template you’ve seen these movies and obviously we always envisioned it as a trilogy as you can imagine (lot’s of laughter), the third would very much a finale and an ending."

"The most I could say about it and I haven’t discussed it with [the HANGOVER actors] is that it is not following that template but very much a new idea. 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."

Extra Tidbit: Without the amnesia premise, what would you want to see happen to these guys in a third movie? Or would you even want one?

Wow. That comparison blew my mind. I knew they were similar....but damn...that was the exact same.

I'm not sure what they's do for part 3. I always wanted part 2 to be that Doug was accidently sold into the Taiwan sex trade and the wolfpack spends the movie tracing his path to find him. A search and rescue would be better than amnesia but could still follow the same formula of them trying to piece together the journey. Chow helps, happiness ensues. I'm optimistic about 2, but it DOES look like the same damn movie.

I hope you never write screenplays or take part in coming up with storylines.......

ROUS - feel free to be a dick to this guy, but that's still a more entertaining and creative premise than the current "OH NO, IT HAPPENED AGAAAAIIINNNN *does the hands-on-face Home Alone scream for added sarcastic effect*

I really hope they got more creative with this sequel than they're letting on with the trailers, but I don't think so.

I didn't see the first one

But from what I'm hearing, it shouldn't really keep me from following the plot of this one.

In the third movie, they should wake up with amnesia to find themselves sewn together in a human centipede. Next to a startled panda. Hilarity ensues, titans clash and heroes rise.

Come on - all hope for a change in formula is wishful thinking. Hangover was huge - and if the sequel does even close (or better) - do you really think the studio would 'dare' screw around with the formula? And all involved will be paid so much they won't give a crap about 'art', etc. Cash cows don't usually change their patterns that easily.

of course this will be decided come box office numbers time, and judging by the first one, id say this one has a pretty good chance of making this into a trilogy. i for one loved the hangover and will probably love this one too, i find the situations and the characters great, thus making these films a great time at the movies :)

nevertheless, that trailer with both movies really showed me something, if you cant beat them, join them! meaning that if a formula works, just use it time and

I'll watch it.

But I think the only way to end a third one is with most, if not all, of the main characters dying. Like when the sequel talk first came around, Zack Gallifianakis said they should do something like No Country For Old Men. That would be the ballsiest thing ever.

That's a fucking great idea. Anton Chigur hunting them down after they steal some cash on one of their drunken benders.

if this is destined to become a trilogy, with 2 members of the wolfpack getting married then the only person left wud be Alan to take the plunge..that is the perfect way to end the trilogy, yes it can be believable also for a woman to fall for alan, hell if any Sandler movie can make us believe he is married to Kate Beckinsale & chase after Drew Berrymore TWICE & try to woo Brooklyn Decker, anything can happen....also id say have them go to Amsterdam.

Uhhh?....Sandler chasing after Berrymore is nothing to be surprised about. She is so very unattractive.

I think the OP was aware of that fact. Sarcasm flies too far under the radar at this site.

Well it's through typing and I couldn't hear his tone. So therefore I would have no idea.

What I loved about the Hangover wasn't so much the scenario they found themselves in, but the character dynamics between these four guys (I'm counting Doug because you really do feel his absence from the group, and when he reappears they barely miss a beat.) So it occurs to me they could have gone in any number of directions for the sequel, it didn't even have to be called 'The Hangover II.' To go in the same direction is inherently a letdown.
