This isn’t really new news as it’s been making the rounds online for a while, but producer Todd Phillips producer for “The Hangover 2” publicly stated that the sequel will not take place in Las Vegas again.
The sequel, scheduled to start shooting later this month, will take the bruised and battered pals to climes near and far – and in both cases, no doubt, seriously hazardous. “It takes place in Bangkok and LA,” Phillips told Empire. “There’s gonna be some fucked-up surprises.”
I love “The Hangover.” Partially because it was set in Las Vegas, but mostly because it’s a funny movie. Zach Galifianakis was the highlight for me. “The Hangover 2” won’t be bad because it’s not in Vegas. It will be bad because most sequels are.
With Las Vegas being shunned for Bangkok I’m curious if any local writers decide to take offense to this movie not being film in Las Vegas.
