Read Bradley Cooper's Bio HERE
This week four new sneak peeks of "The Hangover Part 2" were released giving us an insight into the madness involved in Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms adventures in Thailand but perhaps even more revealing was an recent interview with Todd Phillips, the movie's director.
Phillips told MTV "I think there are very few sequels that have been made that live up to or exceed their first film. 'The Godfather' is the first one. We had always planned on calling it 'The Hangover 2,' and when we finished the script, I changed the cover page and wrote 'The Hangover Part II,' because I think the film lives up to or exceeds the first one. It was very much a nod to 'The Godfather.' "
The director also believes that like Robert DeNiro as the breakout character in Francis Ford Coppola's masterpiece, the monkey will steal the show in "The Hangover Part 2". He said "There's a monkey in the film that I think is going to book a lot of parts after this film…When a monkey nibbles on a weenus, it's funny in any language."
As the sequel is already set to be a success on the big screen Phillips hinted that a third "Hangover" could be a possibility. He said "I could [do a third]…And I'm only saying that because we love working together — me, Ed [Helms], Bradley, Zach, Justin [Bartha], Ken Jeong. We have such a good time on these movies. I know it sounds absurd, but I see other movies that have gone to three and you go, 'I get why they do it.' It's actually fun. We just spend the whole day laughing and trying to make a movie."
The movie hits theaters May 26th.
