When you have the worst weekend of your life because your best friend’s lame brother-in-law slips you roofies, you might not be inclined to party with him again. But that’s obviously not going to prevent Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Justin Bartha from hanging with Zach Galifianakis in the sequel to the $277 million hit comedy, The Hangover. According to Empire Magazine, production on the follow-up begins later this month, and director Todd Phillips says that his amnesia-afflicted party boys will wisely steer clear of Las Vegas the second time around. But don’t expect a mild golf weekend either. Phillips is sending the boys to Bangkok, where they might encounter one of their nemeses. “Mr. Chow’s back too,” says Phillips, referring to the nasty Asian gangster played by Ken Jeong. What will send the fellas across the Pacific remains a mystery, but I’m confident there are clues in the classic Murray Head tune:
“Bangkok, Oriental setting, And the city don’t know what the city is getting, The creme de la creme of the chess world, In a show with everything but Yul Brynner.”
Check mate. You’re welcome.
Post your own two-sentence pitch for what The Hangover 2 will be about. Are you hoping for more Mike Tyson and his air-drums? Perhaps grooving to Head’s 1980′s hit tune?
