In what will probably be the breakout performance of the year, comedian/actor Zach Galifianakis now has his choice of projects, but one of them he’s less-than-excited for is a potential sequel to “The Hangover”. It’s not that he won’t do it, but he has his concerns and they’re legitimate. Hit the jump to see why he’s not immediately jumping back on board.
Speaking with IGN, Galifianakis had this to say:
Galifianakis: [Director Todd Phillips] is writing the script. But I haven’t seen the script. I’m not running to do “The Hangover 2”. I told Todd, the last thing I want is the “Police Academy”-chain all of the sudden, where I’m only known from… You’ve got to be careful with something like that. The movie’s really good, why bother with a sequel? And I’m not saying that I’m not going to do it. I’m just posing these questions. These are things I ask Todd. Obviously, the reason is executives have Bentleys to pay for. I would love, love, love to work with those guys again. The script has to be good! But I’m working with Todd on a movie we’ll be shooting in about six weeks. So I’ll do that first, and then we’ll see how it goes.
Head over to IGN for Zach’s thoughts on “Hangover” becoming the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all-time and his upcoming work with Phillips.
