Phillips Says Hangover 2 Script is Half Done

ON

Entertainment Weekly talked to director Todd Phillips, who revealed that he’s halfway done with the script for The Hangover 2.

Though he’s keeping the plot under wraps for now, he promises the sequel won’t simply rehash the events of the first film. “What people loved about ‘The Hangover’ was not Las Vegas or the bachelor party but these three characters,” Phillips said. “I think you can take those characters and put them in other situations, and you don’t need the sell of Vegas and a bachelor party and all that other stuff.”

The first film earned a massive $459.3 million in theaters worldwide.
