Todd Phillips On The Hangover 2
Exclusive: It's Bangkok nights

04 October 2010  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

Todd Phillips is a busy man. After making comedy look pretty effortless with The Hangover, he's back hoping to repeat the trick with roadtripper Due Date, all while gearing up for the another dose of Rohypnol-fuelled mayhem with The Hangover 2.

The sequel, scheduled to start shooting later this month, will take the bruised and battered pals to climes near and far - and in both cases, no doubt, seriously hazardous. "It takes place in Bangkok and LA," Phillips told Empire. "There's gonna be some fucked-up surprises."

While the potential for fucked-up surprises in Patpong is virtually limitless, it's less of a shock to learn that Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms will be back at the heart of the carnage. "The three guys are back," Phillips said. "Mr. Chow's back too."

More carnage, more eccentric gangster weirdness from Ken Jeong and the promise of a tiger encounter in its natural habitat. Sounds good to our ears. Phillips, meanwhile, can spot a hacked-out sequel when he sees one and is promising that The Hangover 2 won't follow in less-than-illustrious footsteps. "I'm not delusional," he said. "I know what I'm up against. I saw Meet The Fockers. But we're aiming high. It's called The Hangover Part Two, you know."

RE: What about...?
Happy either way but I was thinking of "White Doug" primarily. More
