The Hangover 2: In Thailand?

the hangover06 The Hangover 2: In Thailand?

Ever since it was announced that there will be a sequel to director Todd Phillips’ surprise hit, The Hangover, people have been asking one very obvious question:

“What the hell would it be about?”

Obviously the first Hangover dealt with the mystery and consequences of one truly awesome bachelor party in Vegas. Kind of a once-in-a-lifetime thing, right?

Well, luckily, getting blackout wasted has become a sporting hobby for some in our society, so it’s conceivable that our (heroes?) from The Hangover might one day match the epic obliteration they experienced in the first film – but where to set such a stage?

How about Thailand? Because according to a ‘source close to the film,’ that’s exactly where the sequel is headed.

Known for its beauty, adventure, bustling urban centers, gorgeous jungle countrysides and jaw-dropping ancient architecture – along with ladyboys, “ping-pong shows,” underground fighting rings, shots of cobra blood, delicious Pad Thai and a city overrun by monkeys – Thailand seems like an appropriate enough setting for the Hangover gang. That list of attractions I just laid out alone guarantees a movie filled with hilarity and raunch. I’m sure director Todd Phillips has even better stuff than that up is sleeve (or at the very least, all of that up his sleeve).

hangover 2 monkeys The Hangover 2: In Thailand? These guys are ready to party with The Hangover gang.

God… the more I think about it, the more I’m already cringing at just the THOUGHT of what this movie could be (shudders).

The Hangover 2 will reportedly follow the three main characters of Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Alan (Zach Galifianakis) in their new locale. No word if Justin Bartha, who played bachelor Doug, will be along for the ride.

Latino Review actually got word a few months back that The Hangover 2 would be set in Thailand – from Zach Galifianakis himself:

Galifianakis: Well, ‘The Hangover 2′ I think we’re going to Thailand. The problem with ‘Hangover 2′ is that we have to up what we did which is very difficult. So we get, I think, kind of kidnapped. It has nothing to do with the bachelor party. We’re definitely not doing that again but we do end up in an exotic location. That’s all I know. I want the character to be in really good shape. I told the director that. I said, ‘Can we surprise people? He takes his shirt off?’ He was like, ‘No. No one wants to see you in good shape.’ (Laughs)

A kidnapping plot? Will we see our guys sold into sex slavery? (The joke potential just keeps on growing.)

Right now The Hangover 2 is in the scripting stages, so consider this Thailand business a RUMOR until the final draft gets turned in. (Fingers crossed that it happens!)

    What do you mean you’re “cringing at the THOUGHT of what this movie could be”?

  2. @ogb

    Child prostitution.

    Vic

  3. huh? I don’t see that mentioned anywhere…

  4. @ogb
    Think of the scene with the monkey in that Dwanye “The Rock” Johnson movie where he’s a bruiser looking for some guy’s son. Now picture what the director of The Hangover would do with monkeys. CRINGE would be putting it nicely. :-D

  5. yea I think it will be funny for sure, its a great setting for that trio lots of possible jokes there.

  6. lol got it

    (that scene from Rundown was pretty funny)

    I’m definitely looking forward to more R rated comedies.

  7. Um isnt that photo actually of Snow Monkeys from japan bathing in the warm springs?

    Title needs to be THE 2nd Hangover

  8. I am so happy that R-rated comedies have not dies. Hey, why not have Eddie murphy cameo in the hangover 2 , as bill murray worked for zombieland, just a though,lol. Well actually the crazy asian who kidnapped the ‘other’ doug has got to be in the hangover 2.

  9. This sounds great. The director brought up the idea of sending them to another country and not knowing how they got there a couple months back, and I’m glad they’ve decided to stick with that premise rather than re-hash the bachelor party.

    I was thinking they go somewhere in Europe, but Thailand is a much, much better idea (for all the reasons Kofi’s listed above).

  10. What’s the capital of Thailand? BANG-KOK (As I’m smacked in the lower regions). OUCH! I agree, this is the perfect place for The 2nd Hangover! How do I know? I’ve currently live in Thailand and I have seen some crazy and I mean CRAZY stuff. Not just ping pong shows but these women shoot darts and smoke cigs out of their…. you know what! Now that’s talent if you ask me. Not to mention Cambodia being it’s neighbor, the crazy stuff that goes on there too… rocket launcher renter to blow up a water buffulo, daaaang! So much crazy in So. East Asia. So pack your bags and come for a visit.

  11. OMG! Now I know alot of people may not have ever set foot in Thailand or ever even encoutered actual people from Thailand. This has the potential to be another great movie. Beside Vegas, as a guy, Thailand has to be that one place that every man owes it to himself to experience at least once.
    -TingTong you’re exactly right with the ping pong and dart thing. After seeing that I call the shows there the greatest show on earth.

  12. You can be sure there will be a stolen elephant involved at some point during the film.

    How about The Hangover 3? You just KNOW there will be one. I say set it in either Shanghi or Tijuana. Lots of humorous possiblities there.

  13. i miss the days when you let a movie stand alone without trying to cash in on a sequel

  14. Sex slavery isn’t funny its sad I hope they think of a better idea or the movie may not work bcus people are rly serious abt how bad sex slavery is

  15. Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Conner (Ben Butler) Alan (Zach Galifianakis) Justin Bartha…. sounds like a good film.. none of the people from the first movie were even famous before that movie lmao now there the biggest stars of 2009.

  16. that crazy asian guy should be the one kidnaps them

  17. I think that Bradley Cooper and Edhelms were pretty big names before The Hangover. But thats my opinion

  18. I hope they bring Heather Graham back. They can go so much further with it. Maybe Stu's ex-girlfriend is angry at him for braking up with her and she kidnaps the guys and sends them to Thailand.

  19. I think that Bradley Cooper and Edhelms were pretty big names before The Hangover. But thats my opinion

  20. I hope they bring Heather Graham back. They can go so much further with it. Maybe Stu's ex-girlfriend is angry at him for braking up with her and she kidnaps the guys and sends them to Thailand.

  21. I think that Bradley Cooper and Edhelms were pretty big names before The Hangover. But thats my opinion

  22. I hope they bring Heather Graham back. They can go so much further with it. Maybe Stu's ex-girlfriend is angry at him for braking up with her and she kidnaps the guys and sends them to Thailand.

  23. I think hangover the sequel sld b about what happened that night when they got drunk.

  24. i think they should show what they did . because i was dying to know ! but Thailand would be awesome too either way can not wait to see it!
