In order to start the development of the third film in the series "The Hangover," from Warner took more time to think, rather than in the case of a sequel. Continued it was decided to withdraw before the premiere of the original, whereas the third film gave the green light only this week.
On Monday, the world's box-office of film "Hangover II" crossed the mark of $200 million. Yet not a single comedy failed to collect such money in such a short period of time.
Warner has begun preparing for the third film by searching for a screenwriter. The first thing the studio turned to Craig Mazin â€“ one of the authors of a sequel. On account of Mazin is comedy "Senseless", "Scary Movie" (third and fourth) and "Superhero Movie". Negotiations have begun with screenwriter, but the details of the plot, of course, will be kept confidential.
Director Todd Phillips in his interviews has repeatedly noted that he has ideas for the third picture. The concept remains the same: the heroes Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis at the bachelor party and get drunk in the morning cannot remember what happened to them. Since the actors have not yet signed contracts, but most likely it is a matter of time.
Note that the budget for the sequel was almost twice the original. "Hangover" cost the studio $ 35 million and brought together the world's 467 million. The second film was worth 80 million. Moreover, the project was in jeopardy because of the requirements of the actors to raise fees. Cooper, Galifianakis and Helms got together for the first "Hangover" is less than 1 million for three. They thankfully, the studio did not sign them to continue, so that after the incredible success of the original guys could haggle.
Warner showed a hefty short-sightedness, signing an agreement with the trio only for a sequel. Given the huge fees of the first rolling weekend, the appetites of the actors can easily become even greater. However, this issue will become a headache only for the studio bosses.
