HOLLYWOOD – Following American Hustle and American Sniper, Bradley Cooper confirmed that his American trilogy will be concluded with American Hangover.
Speaking EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec, Bradley ‘The Face’ Cooper said:
I’m not exactly long in the tooth but I’d like to see this as my central acting achievement. American Hustle was about an underworld America. American Sniper is of course about America at war. And American Hangover is going to be exactly like the other Hangover movies, but with the word America in the title. We’re all very excited.
Does this have anything to do with Elvis’ American trilogy?
Yes and no. Mainly no.
What stage is the script at?
Well, we’ve photocopied the first half of Hangover 3 and we’ve just got to do the second half, cross out the title, write in the new title and we’re away.
Yeah, I know and the funniest thing about those films is that they keep paying us to do them. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that’s the only funny thing about them.
Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms are set to return and Todd Phillips has agreed once more to direct. Philips told the Exec:
We are all committed to completing Bradley’s vision, saluting his diverse skills as an actor and money. Mainly money.
American Hangover will be released in 2016.
HOLLYWOOD – With the release of the Trailer of The Hangover Part 3, the Studio Exec was given the opportunity to sit down and speak with the cast and director.
‘When we got together to talk about doing a third part to the much loved comedy series The Hangover, one thing we were all agreed on was not to simply photocopy the original,’ says writer Todd Phillips. ‘After all, we already did that with Hangover Part 2. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!’
The ‘creative’ team behind the multi-million dollar franchise decided that there free and easy approach to alcohol had perhaps been a ‘mite irresponsible’ and so to add a darker tone and to redress the balance it was decided early on to kill off several members of the cast.
Zach Galifianakis butts in:
Initially my character erm… Alan, I think he’s called? Any way me. I was going to contract hepatitis from the drinking and liver damage and they would have had to amputate both my legs which got gangrenous. But then we decided a lot of the comedy beats were a bit off, but then we said well if after the operations I die anyway, now THAT would be hilarious.
Of course once we’d killed Alan we thought, Wow, what if we killed off Bradley Cooper as well, I mean his character.Jesus what is his name? Anyway, we thought he could Hendrix, you know choke on his own vomit in a drink induced coma. It’d be gross out comedy and poignant to boot.
Cooper laughs, with this look of fear in his eye. He takes up the narrative:
So then Ed Helms who plays David or Doug or Dan or someone, he was like woah there. What about me? So Todd came up with this…
Fantastic idea. Yeah. That he should drink drive and like crash the car and totally be decapitated, and because he’s so fucking drunk, he’s like staggering around like a fucking chicken. I mean comedy is about accumulation. First he loses a tooth and then his head. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
So Ken Jeong’s character is the only one to survive?
Heck no. He gets really depressed and kills himself.
The Hangover Part 3 will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May, 2013.
