While Todd Phillips and his writers have largely been keeping the details of the third Hangover outing secret, casting info has begun to trickle out, with word that Heather Graham is set to return to the franchise as Jade. But now there’s a new face lined up, because John Goodman is in talks to sign up.
Goodman’s role, which is being kept quiet, is being described as "small and antagonistic" in the style of Paul Giamatti’s in the second film.
Phillips has said that the third movie will ditch the template used in the first two, but the only other detail has emerged courtesy of Zach Galifianakis, who told Rolling Stone last year that he’d heard the story would see two of the Wolfpack (Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms) breaking fellow member Alan out of a mental institution. But who knows if that’s still the story or if ZG was just messing with interviewers?
With Cooper, Helms, Galifianakis, Graham, Mike Epps, Sasha Barrese, Sondra Currie, Mike Tyson, Ken Jeong and more set to return, The Hangover 3 is set to start shooting in September, with a release set for May 24 next year.
