Add Hangover to the list of comedy trilogies like the Friday series. All three stars of the hit comedy, Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper and Ed Galifianakis have signed on for the final installation of the trilogy which, according to the movie’s producer Todd Phillips is scheduled to be released on May 24, 2013.
“We’re going to surprise a lot of people with the final chapter we have planned,” Phillips told The Hollywood Reporter. “It will be a fitting conclusion to our three-part opera of mayhem, despair and bad decisions.
With the first two installations of the Hangover combined grossing more that $1 billion, each of the three stars will reportedly make $15 million a piece for their roles this time around. Bradley Cooper told MTV News about their approach to the script writing process and how part three will put a bow on the entire series.
“We adhered to the formula in the second one, for those of you who’ve seen it, and the third one, which would close the whole sort of trilogy, which now it would be a trilogy — even though we thought we would never make a second one, let alone anybody see the first one — I think it will take place in Los Angeles and maybe not adhere to the structure. It might be different,” he said.
If you ask most people, they’ll probably say that there was a noticeable drop-off from The Hangover to the sequel. But those same people will probably tell that they’ll hit the theaters to see the series finale.
