Pre-wedding brunch leads to "Hangover II" mayhem
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Warner Bros. has revealed a key plot-point for "The Hangover Part II" -- a seemingly innocent brunch will set the wheels in motion for the comedy.
The newly released studio press kit reveals how "The Hangover" crew of Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) will find trouble when Helms' character gets married in Thailand.
"After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch," the release says. "However, things don't always go as planned."
In the "Hangover," Las Vegas served as the location for the mayhem that followed a lost bachelor party evening. The sequel promises even more.
"What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can't even be imagined," the synopsis says.
Director Todd Phillips is returning, as are Ken Jeong and Mike Tyson. Mel Gibson was supposed to have a cameo as a tattoo artist, but the ill-starred actor was dropped by the nervous studio and replaced by Liam Neeson. Jamie Chung has also joined the lineup, as the new fiancee of Helms' character. The film is scheduled to be released next May.
