Production has begun on The Hangover Part III, and the first set photos have leaked online. There’s nothing to revelatory here other than Alan (Zach Galifianakis) has decided not to keep his bald-monk look from Part II. In addition to lead actors Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper, the photos also show off the wolf pack’s wives, Stephanie (Gillian Vigman), Lauren (Jamie Chung), and Tracy (Sasha Barrese). Presumably, they have many disapproving stares to give.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Justin Bartha, Ken Jeong, Heather Graham, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Goodman. The Hangover Part III opens May 24, 2013.
The Hangover‘s success has lead to plenty of imitators and spin-offs, but it became such a juggernaut in its own right that it has expanded into a trilogy (but will we also get a Hobbit-esque origin story eventually? Stay tuned …). Principle photography is underway for the finale of the Hangover trilogy, which will reunite its steadfast cast (Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha) as well as their on-screen wives (Gillian Vigman, Sasha Barrese and Jamie Chung) and other familiar faces (Ken Jeong, Heather Graham, Jeffrey Tambor) as well as a new one (John Goodman).
Todd Phillips is also returning to direct the Warner Bros. picture as well as co-write it along with his collaborator from the second movie, Craig Mazin. Hit the jump for more on the production, as well as a hint to what the new film will be about.

Principal Photography began today on Matt Reeves’ “Let Me In”, the remake of Tomas Alfredson’s acclaimed film, “Let the Right One In” which was an adaptation of the John Ajvide Lindqvist’s novel of the same name. It’s difficult to find a fan of Alfredson’s film who is excited for this remake since the Swedish landscape is such an integral part of the film’s tone and overarching themes. Couple that with the tendency of American films to avoid ambiguity and relationships which may make audiences uncomfortable and you can see why the reception of its production is (appropriately) chilly.
But actors Elias Koteas (“Zodiac”), Cara Buono (“The Sopranos”), and Sasha Barrese (“The Hangover”) are giving the film a chance and joining stars Kodi-Smit McPhee (“The Road”), Chloe Moretz (“Kick-Ass”) and Richard Jenkins (“The Visitor”). Hit the jump for more details.
