After the huge success of The Hangover – it has become the most successful R-rated comedy of all time, surpassing even Beverly Hills Cop – everyone’s buzzing about the possibility of a sequel. Zach Galifianakis talked recently a little bit about what project he has lined up next, and whether or not he’d be down with a Hangover sequel.
Galifianakis gave an interview to IGN and in it he talks about working with the director of The Hangover, Todd Phillips, for his next film, and what the deal is with a sequel:
I'm not running to do The Hangover 2. I told Todd, the last thing I want is the Police Academy chain all of the sudden, where I'm only known from… You've got to be careful with something like that. The movie's really good. Why bother with a sequel?
He then goes on to say that the next film he’s doing is with Phillips, which is called Due Date. It has a similar premise to Hangover, as Galifianakis says it’s "with Robert Downey, Jr. It's the two of us – kind of a road trip movie, across the country, where he has to go get to Los Angeles quick enough time to see the birth of his kid.”
At this point it looks like Galifianakis is going to have no trouble keeping busy. The question is whether or not he’s going to get onboard for a Hangover sequel. Should the filmmakers leave good enough alone or try to capitalize on the biggest R-rated comedy of all time?
