Vince Vaughn recently confirmed that Wedding Crashers 2 is in early development and currently his co-star, Owen Wilson, and director, David Dobkin, are said to be involved. News of a potential sequel to Wedding Crashers has already caught the interest of Isla Fisher, who also co-starred in the film, and now Christopher Walken and Jane Seymour, who were also a part of the hilarious supporting cast of the first film, have both said they would love to return for a sequel if asked.

During a chat with "Cinemablend", Jane Seymour spoke on behalf of herself and Walken and she admits they both want in on a follow-up:

"We both have said we'd love to, at least that's how I remember it. I definitely said I would love to. I'm sure he would, he loved doing that movie. I read about these things all the time, but no one actually has given me a phone call. So I don't know if I would be involved or not."

In the 2005 film, Walken played Secretary William Cleary, the patriarch of the family while Jane Seymour stole nearly all her scenes as his wife, Kathleen Cleary. You may remember her more by her self-imposed nickname "kitty cat." Rachel McAdams and Isla Fisher player their daughters Claire Cleary and Gloria Cleary, respectively. So far, McAdams hasn't spoken on if she would be on board for a sequel to Wedding Crashers but it seems like every other week someone from the original cast expresses some kind of interest so I wouldn't be surprised if she commented on the sequel soon.

Wedding Crashers is arguably one of the best comedies to come out in the last 15 years. Back in 2005, the film became one of the biggest success stories of the summer and the whole year. Made for $40 million, the comedy went on to gross $209.2 million at the domestic box office and critics dug it too with a solid 76% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The film came out during the height of the powers of Vince Vaugh and Owen Wilson and it also debuted as Rachel McAdams was blowing up after Mean Girls and The Notebook. Throw in some fun supporting turns from Isla Fisher, Bradley Cooper, Christopher Walken, and Jane Seymour, you really had the perfect storm of comedic success.

It was just recently that Vaughn confirmed during an interview with Entertainment Tonight that the sequel has moved beyond tossing around ideas and they are in early talks on a concept that they seem pretty happy about:

"Owen [Wilson] and I and the director of Crashers have been talking for the first time seriously [about] a sequel to that movie. So there has been an idea that is pretty good. So we are talking about that in the early stages."

Before Vaughn did the Entertainment Tonight interview, he elaborated on why he never wanted to make a sequel but an idea from David Dobkin had him interested in the opportunity:

"David Dobkin had a really good idea that's contemporary. I never went and made a sequel to a lot of these films at the time because it felt like we were just chasing a success. But what I like about where Crashers could potentially be at is [that] there's something that is of this moment that feels really good… a lot of these comedies, even something like Wedding Crashers, you're sort of investigating things that I think are real in our lives, but the comedy is an overcommitment to the absurd."

If Wedding Crashers 2 has to happen, then I would be on board for a lot of the original cast returning. Comedy sequels don't typically stick the landing and I honestly think too much time has passed to make this viable but, if this has to happen, the key components that made the first film so successful have to be in place to get me more invested.
