Zach Galifianakis Spills About “The Hangover, Part III”

It didn't take long for confirmation of another film in the "Hangover" franchise, but the details of it being “deadly serious” left some of us feeling uneasy about a third installment.

Breakout star of the series Zach Galifianakis recently sat down with Rolling Stone, with the popular comedy films obviously being a subject of the conversation. Apparently this sequel is serious business already; here’s what he had to say via Geek Tyrant:

want to do a Hangover III. I'm getting fricking phone calls already." He goes on to reveal [sic] tha they plan to ‘ditch format of the first two and focus on Alan (Galifianakis) after he escapes from a mental institution with help from the wolf pack — Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha).’"

While that doesn’t sound “deadly serious” – Alan was bound to get stuck in a mental institution one of these days, right? – it’s definitely a stark turn from the first two features and likely marks a significant change in pace and plot development from them as well. At the moment, it sounds much more promising than again employing the find-our-lost-friend plot device of the previous installments and could shape up to be a really intriguing comedy project.

What do you want out of a third "Hangover" and will that idea suffice?
