Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures are reteaming with Todd Phillips for “The Hangover Part III,” the third installment in the record-breaking comedy franchise, which is slated for release on
May 24, 2013. The announcement was made today by Jeff Robinov, President Warner Bros. Pictures Group.
“The Hangover Part III” will star Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis, who will reprise the roles of Phil, Stu and Alan, collectively known to moviegoers as “the Wolfpack.” In the previous two films, the three friends’ attempts to plan a celebration have resulted in disaster for them, but led to a combined billion-dollar success at the worldwide box office.
In making the announcement, Robinov stated, “We are extremely pleased to have Todd Phillips and the guys back together again for another ‘Hangover,’ and we look forward to collaborating with them on another great movie.”
Phillips said, “I’m so excited to embark on another ‘Hangover’ film with Bradley, Ed and Zach. We’re going to surprise a lot of people with the final chapter we have planned. It will be a fitting conclusion to our three-part opera of mayhem, despair and bad decisions.”
Phillips is writing the screenplay with Craig Mazin, who also collaborated with him on the screenplay for “The Hangover Part II.” Phillips is again producing the film under his Green Hat Films banner, together with Dan Goldberg. Thomas Tull and Scott Budnick will serve as executive producers.
Production on the film is projected to begin in September 2012.
A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures, in association with Legendary Pictures, “The Hangover Part III” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

“We're going to surprise a lot of people with the final chapter we have planned," Phillips says.

Filmmaker Todd Phillips is finally getting over his Hangover.

As part of an announcement Thursday of the start of production on the third installment of the wildly successful comedy movies, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures included a statement from Phillips noting that Hangover Part III will be the last.

“We're going to surprise a lot of people with the final chapter we have planned," Phillips said. "It will be a fitting conclusion to our three-part opera of mayhem, despair and bad decisions."

The third Hangover film will hit theaters May 24, 2013, the same Memorial Day perch that helped Hangover II gross $581.5 million worldwide. After prolonged deal negotiations, stars Bradley Cooper, Zack Galafianakis and Ed Helms are set to return.

The Hangover movies have given Warner Bros. a rare R-rated comedy franchise. The first Hangover movie, released in 2009, was a surprise hit, catching everyone off-guard and grossing $467.5 million worldwide. Indeed, the studio didn’t even have option deals for the stars and had to negotiate hefty premiums for the 2011 sequel, as well as the next installment. THR reported in January that the three stars were asking for $15 million paydays for the third film and were likely to get it.

While it was likely that the companies could have kept the comedy series going indefinitely, expanding the idea of mirthful mayhem to cities around the globe, the simple cost of keeping the actors around would have been significant.

Phillips, who again is writing the screenplay with Craig Mazin (Hangover Part II), didn’t give any indication where the third story will take place, though THR reported that a recent draft of the script was set in Los Angeles and deviated from the forgotten-debauchery formula of the first two films.
